REACH Trust is a Malawian multi-disciplinary research NGO registered as a Trust in 2005 under the Trustees
act. Before registering as a Trust, REACH was born out of long established research collaboration between
the Malawian National TB Control Programme, the Department of Sociology at the University of Malawi
and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK which started in 1999 until 2005.

This collaboration was funded by the Department for International Development (DFID) as the
‘TB Equity Project’
and later as the TB Knowledge programme with a focus on conducting
health research.
