EP16-251-22-Standardised framework for evaluating the cost-effectiveness of TB case finding and treatment initiation projectsInterventions that streamline and reduce gaps in the tuberculosis (TB) care cascade can play crucial roles in TB control efforts. However, such interventions are often operationally complex and resource intensive. There is a need to better understand their costs and cost-effectiveness to support decisions for future funding, strategic adoption and programme scale-up.

EP16-252-22-Interferon gamma release assay is a cost-effective option for provision of TB preventive therapy in high-burden, resource-limited settingsCost-effectiveness analysis is needed to inform the adoption of interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) for diagnosing latent tuberculosis (TB) in resource-limited settings. A feasibility study in Uganda shows that IGRA is cost-effective per TB disease and infection averted and, therefore, a viable option for resource-limited settings.

EP16-253-22-Pretreatment costs for TB patients: results from an observational cohort study in Johannesburg, South AfricaTuberculosis (TB) patients the world over are faced not only with the infection itself, but also the medical and non-medical costs associated with seeking care. This abstract describes the direct (out-of-pocket) payment that patients incur before TB treatment initiation as well as highlights the sequence of providers seen.

EP16-254-22-The costs of providing TB services in healthcare facilities in Kenya: a case for investment to end TBThe Kenyan National Tuberculosis (TB), Leprosy and Lung Disease Program conducted a comprehensive costing study for tuberculosis (TB) service delivery. The unit costs for all TB interventions and services will inform future budgeting processes and national strategic planning in Kenya.
Angela Kairu

EP16-255-22-The cost of reaching agricultural workers for TB prevention and treatment services in South AfricaGiven occupational exposures and distances from health facilities, agricultural workers are at special risk for tuberculosis (TB) in South Africa. We implemented a community and workplace-based outreach, screening and adherence support intervention. This model offers a cost-efficient solution for active case finding among key populations.

EP16-256-22-Cost-effectiveness analysis of three tuberculosis (TB) case detection methods implemented in South West Nigeria State of Lagos, Oyo and OsunIt is a cross-sectional study designed to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of three different tuberculosis (TB) case detection methods in South West Nigeria. Household contact tracing with routine passive case detection is the most cost-effective approach to detect new TB cases, compared with house-to-house campaign and private facility incentive methods.

EP16-257-22-An evaluation of the feasibility and costs associated with a private sector engagement pilot for pharmacies in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet NamPharmacies represent the initial care seeking point for a large proportion of people with tuberculosis (TB), yet this category of providers had not been systematically engaged in Viet Nam. We evaluated the feasibility and costs of a pharmacy engagement pilot which used the SwipeRx social networking app to make diagnostic referrals.

EP16-258-22-Cost-effectiveness analysis of nine-month MDR-TB treatment regimen as evaluated within the STREAM trial. Further presentation of differences in food supplement spending and working hours disaggregated by sexThe STREAM 1 trial demonstrated that the short regimen reduced health system costs and was associated with an earlier return to work and a reduction in supplementary food spending. We are now presenting the food supplement and working hours data, dissagregated by sex, and the probabilistic estimates of the likelihood that the short regimen is cost-effective.

EP16-259-22-Cost analysis of the diagnostic cascade among patients with presumed pulmonary TB searching for care at a public health centre in Rio de Janeiro, BrazilThe reduction of socioeconomic inequities is a priority for the elimination of tuberculosis (TB).  We aimed to analyse the direct and indirect costs incurred in the diagnosis of pulmonary TB among patients with presumed TB searching for care at a public health centre in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

EP16-260-22-Setting chest X-ray abnormality thresholds to conduct validation of artificial intelligence vendors and ensure targeted and cost-effective GeneXpert testing for abnormal X-ray personsIn settings where artificial intelligence (AI) is used as a screening aid, the probability of having tuberculosis (TB) determines if a patient will be referred for GeneXpert testing. Setting the right probability threshold can validate AI software and ensure the minimum number of tests are conducted to find the maximum number of patients.

EP16-261-22-Charging user fees is not a predictor of the number of TB cases detected among private health facilities in NigeriaThe United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) Plus SHOPS (Sustaining Health Outcomes through Private Sector) Nigeria initiative supports screening and testing tuberculosis (TB) clients in clinical facilities to increase access to care through the private sector. Facilities are allowed to charge for care. We hypothesised that charging fees is not associated with higher/lower TB case detection and used programme data to validate.

EP16-262-22-Cost-effectiveness analysis of proposed TB diagnostic algorithm using the loop-mediated isothermal amplification among presumptive TB patients in the PhilippinesThis paper is an economic evaluation study of different diagnostic tools used among healthcare facilities under the tuberculosis (TB) control programme in the Philippines. DSSM as the conventional method, GeneXpert a rapid molecular test and PURE-TB LAMP (loop-mediated isothermal amplification) as a novel molecular point of care test.
