In 2022, USAID presented its tuberculosis roadmap overview for Zimbabwe. The report noted that there was progress in reducing the TB burden in the country, as Zimbabwe no longer ranked among the 30 high TB burdened countries in the world. In 2020, the estimated TB burden was 29,000 cases, of which 16,019 TB cases (55%) were diagnosed and notified to the National Tuberculosis Program of Zimbabwe. Among the cases diagnosed and notified, 61% were men, 33% were women, and 6% were children. Additionally, Zimbabwe faces an estimated drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) burden of 1,200 cases, but only 231 (19%) of DR-TB cases were diagnosed and notified to the NTP in 2020.
In 2023, Delft Imaging delivered 45 X-ray systems, including 31 multi-functional, stationary CompassDR X-ray systems and 14 mobile BAC X-ray systems, to the Ministry of Health in Zimbabwe. The project included extensive training and installation services.
