Friends for International Tuberculosis Relief (FIT) is a registered non-profit organization working in the field of tuberculosis (TB) prevention and care service delivery, technical assistance, advocacy and research. FIT was founded in 2012 and consists of TB activists as well as former patients. Our members reside all over the world ranging from Germany to Vietnam, Australia and the U.S., where they do their part in raising awareness and fighting the disease. Past and current partners include the Global Health & Education Trust, Otsuka, Stop TB Partnership, RESULTS Australia, HCMC Public Health Association, Vietnam National TB Control Program, Johnson & Johnson and the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
Despite significant progress, the current rate of decline in TB incidence means that it will take until the year 2130 (95 years longer than planned) to reach the target.
A multifaceted strategy to eliminate TB is urgently needed.
FIT and our partners are working to pilot, evaluate and scale comprehensive, patient-centered TB prevention and care programs aimed at stopping TB transmission, saving lives and reducing suffering.
Our comprehensive approach involves four main areas of focus: Search, Treat, Prevent, Integration and Sustainability.

Our work is focused on TB elimination. We are testing comprehensive strategies to see how that is best achieved. Learn more about one of our projects on Cu Lao Cham Island HERE.
TB advocacy in Germany (2012)
We organized events in Germany to increase overall awareness about TB. These events included presentations, current efforts for TB prevention and control, and avenues for collaboration in Viet Nam.
PROPER CARE (2014)
In 2014, funding from the Global Health and Education Trust enabled us to expand TB activities from 3 to 8 wards in Go Vap, Ho Chi Minh City. In 2015, additional private sector funding expanded our community-based activities to cover all of Go Vap district. The Global Public Health Group at Janssen then generously funded PROPER CARE continuation activities.
Funding from the European Commission allowed us to scale-up active case finding to 6 districts in Ho Chi Minh City and test two types of community healthcare worker models. We began researching health systems and patient costs.
To facilitate access to chest X-ray and health services, we supported IRD VN in organizing 80 days of mobile chest X-ray screening in three districts of Ho Chi Minh City and island screening campaigns in Hoi An and Hai Phong.
Private Pharmacy Engagement Pilot (2019)
We secured a small WPR/TDR grant to research the prevalence of TB in the private sector and evaluate the acceptability of private sector TB programs via an acceptability survey among pharmacists and their clients.
Erase TB (2020)
We received USAID’s Local Organizations Network (LON) award to carry out four work packages under the Erase TB project. The project aims to increase access to TB detection and care, strengthen the capacity of local organizations, engage with private providers and accelerate declines in TB incidence in ten districts of Ha Noi and Ho Chi Minh City.For more information about Our Projects, please CLICK HERE
