Recently, the online medical journal Hospital News reported on PIH's work in Russia.

"One of Partners in Health's (PIH) longterm projects has been the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in the Tomsk region of Siberia, Russia. Established in 1998, the program received a large grant in November 2010 from the United States Agency for International Development to expand its services to five additional Russian regions."

"Dr. Alex Golubkov is the current medical director of the PIH program in Russia and Kazakhstan. He earned his medical degree in Russia in 1999, and then an MPH at Boston University in 2004. Here he discusses the MDR-TB program."
