Lilly and Partners In Health, Brigham and Women's Hospital Team Up to Fight MDR-TB in Former Soviet Republics
Date:2/26/2008

sk Oblast TB Service has enrolled more than 1,300 MDR-TB patients in treatment provided by hospitals, day hospitals and ambulatory facilities in a continuum of care. Patients come from the general population, as well as from the regional prison system, and benefit from the additional physician education and programs offered by PIH and their BWH colleagues.

"Lilly is working to ensure that our corporate responsibility efforts drive measurable results for the communities and patients we serve," said Robert L. Smith, president of the Lilly Foundation. "We do not have a better example of this than The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership, a collaboration with 14 partners including PIH and BWH, which has achieved impressive results. We're honored to be part of this effort."

The $4 million in funding to PIH/BWH for this program and others is part of a $50 million commitment the company announced on World TB Day 2007.

PIH and BWH also have used Lilly funds for a pilot study to implement and assess a simple screening tool (AUDIT) to identify alcohol use disorders among Russian TB patients. This work has led to a randomized controlled trial funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health to assess the effectiveness of pharmacologic and behavioral treatment of patients who are at risk of dropping out of TB treatment due to excessive alcohol use. Working with their Russian colleagues, PIH/BWH faculty also have implemented a community-based intervention program for treating and supporting MDR-TB patients at high risk of treatment default due to social factors such as unemployment, homelessness and alcohol addiction.
