Summary: We propose an integrated body of work that will provide a pathway towards DR-TB prevention and TB elimination in the Pacific by: a) the implementation of a bold TB elimination intervention in Tarawa (Kiribati), b) building workforce capability for TB/DR-TB control and elimination in Kiribati, and more broadly within the Pacific, through a program of training and mentoring, and c) defining the most effective and cost-effective strategies to control TB/DR-TB in the Pacific and beyond.
