Stella Zawedde-Muyanja is a doctoral research fellow at the Infectious Diseases Institute in Kampala, Uganda, where she works to improve provision of tuberculosis care services in public health facilities around the country. In Uganda, despite the widespread application of improved TB diagnostics, half of all people with TB are not notified to the National TB Programme. Of those that are notified, a third do not complete therapy either because they die or are lost to follow up. Zawedde-Muyanja 's research work is focused on strengthening healthcare systems to increase the number of patients entering and completing the TB Cascade of Care.
