EP05-141-21-Improving surveillance data quality in Nikshay: introduction of machine assisted deduplicationAll healthcare providers in India, including laboratories and chemists, are required to notify cases of tuberculosis (TB) in Nikshay - the national TB surveillance system - increasing the risk of duplicate notifications. To prevent this, a machine-assisted deduplication mechanism has been developed, providing an approximate 25% positive predictive value.

EP05-142-21-The paradox of free TB care in private-for-profit private care facilitiesThe provision of a public health intervention within private-for-profit facilities is morally appealing but can be faced with the challenge of overhead costs. In the implementation of PPM-DOTs models, businesses' operational costs must be considered and incentive packages tailored to mitigate these costs as part of tuberculosis care service for sustainability.

EP05-144-21-Comparison and analysis of different mode of administration for TB treatment in Papua New GuineaThis study compares treatment outcomes in tuberculosis (TB) patients using three modes of administration (MOA), including directly observed treatment (DOT) by treatment supporters, self-administrated treatment (SAT), and family model (FM). We also assessed adherence in a small cohort of multidrug-resistant TB patients with SAT versus FM.

EP05-145-21-Patient-centred TB treatment support tools: a mixed method, randomised controlled pilot study exploring initial efficacy and refinement needsWe present the initial assessment of the tuberculosis (TB) treatment support tools (TB-TSTs) intervention. TB-TSTs links a patient-centred mobile application, a paper-based drug metabolite urine test and interactive communication with a treatment supporter. The study was conducted within a public respiratory specialised reference hospital in Argentina.

EP05-146-21-Evaluation of the accuracy of 99DOTS digital adherence technology for TB in Metro Manila, PhilippinesThe accuracy of 99DOTS, a mobile phone digital adherence tool enabling remote monitoring of tuberculosis (TB) drug intake, was evaluated in a Metro Manila pilot. Results from 103 participants showed the following findings: PPV=97.9%, NPV=0.0% and sensitivity=94.1%. 99DOTS adherence is corroborated by the IsoScreen used to represent true adherence status.

EP05-147-21-Fully oral rifampicin-resistant TB treatment regimens: progress in removing injectable agents from high TB burden country policiesWhile progress has been made in high tuberculosis (TB) burden countries towards policy guidance for shorter and longer all-oral rifampicin- resistant tuberculosis (RR-TB) regimens recommended by the World Health Organization, results from the #StepUpforTB 2020 study shows slow changes in phasing out injectable agent use for routine RR-TB treatment.

EP05-148-21-Patient-centred care for drug-resistant TB: responding to diverse clinical and social circumstancesSouth African healthcare remains poorly responsive to the socio-economic and psychological needs of patients. Patients experience complex medical and social challenges, which belie a one-size-fits-all model of care. Service delivery needs to be differentiated in order to better address specific needs and vulnerabilities of individual patients.

EP05-150-21-Beyond free medical care: why TB patients seeking treatment in national TB programme facilities still face catastrophic expenses in the Philippines?This study determines the drivers of costs faced by tuberculosis (TB) patients seeking treatment in government facilities. Using a cross-sectional survey of 1,880 TB patients, it provides an estimate of the proportion of TB-affected families facing catastrophic cost in the Philippines.

EP05-151-21-Short- and long-term outcomes of video observed TB treatment among patients in Chisinau, the Republic of MoldovaVideo Observed Treatment (VOT) in addition to Directly Observed Treatment Strategy (DOT) was piloted in the Republic of Moldova. A study involved 83 tuberculosis patients on VOT and 86 on DOT. VOT reduced required time and travel costs for treatment while maintaining high levels of adherence and favourable treatment results.
