EP19-278-22-Mathematical modelling of new TB diagnostics at subnational sites: evaluating the effects on health systems and patients across sites in same province with differing characteristicsDifferent tuberculosis (TB) diagnostic strategies provide different benefits and require different resources.  We collected detailed pathway data from eight sites in a single Philippine province and evaluated five diagnostic strategies at each. Strategies were evaluated from a societal and health system perspective, with factors which significantly influenced the optimum strategies identified.

EP19-279-22-Social media as a tool to build capacity and efficient clinical decision making for doctors working in resource-limited settingThe clinical care of presumptive tuberculosis (TB) patients in remote areas can improve significantly by providing distance learning and effectively using social media as a tool to improve knowledge and capacity. This should be practiced in other hard-to-reach areas to provide quality care and accessible health services.

EP19-280-22-Access to quality TB diagnostic services in Nigeria: the role of specimen transport systemsSince 2016, the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Programme (NTBLCP) adopted and implemented the policy of using GeneXpert machine as the primary TB diagnostic tool. Adoption and strengthening a mixed model for effective sputum specimen transportation system greatly increased access to quality diagnostic services, contributing to improved TB case finding.

EP19-281-22-Lateral flow lipoarabinomannan test for diagnosis of TB among people living with HIV in selected health facilities in Nigeria: hype or hope?To increase tuberculosis (TB) case detection among people living with HIV (PLHIV), we evaluated the effectiveness of the lateral flow lipoarabinomannan (LF-LAM) test for TB diagnosis in PLHIV across selected states in Nigeria. Being a urine-based point-of-care- test, LF- LAM was found to bridge the diagnostic gap for PLHIV who could not produce quality sputum.

EP19-282-22-Impact of the rapid molecular test on the incidence of TB in an endemic city in the interior of São Paulo, BrazilEcological study. The Prais-Winsten autoregression method was used to classify the time trend of tuberculosis and then the interrupted time series method was used to identify whether there was a change in incidence after the beginning of diagnosis using the rapid molecular test.

EP19-283-22-Assessment of the quality management system in 23 national reference laboratories for TB in West and Central Africa using the SLIPTA toolAs part of the TB lab project coordinated by the World Health Organization's Supranational Reference Laboratory of Cotonou, the 23 National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for tuberculosis (TB) in the West and Central Africa region were assessed between July 2019 and January 2020 using the SLIPTA (Stepwise Laboratory Improvement Process Towards Accreditation) tool.

EP19-284-22-Results from Namibia’s first TB national disease prevalence survey 2017-2018To better inform the implementation of tuberculosis (TB) control activities in Namibia, it was necessary to quantify the magnitude of the disease burden. The TB disease prevalence survey served as a tool to quantify the burden of TB in Namibia to enable improvement of TB control and, ultimately, end the TB epidemic.

EP19-285-22-Bayesian latent class analysis versus composite reference standards for assessing TB pleuritis diagnostic test accuracyWe used latent class analysis to estimate the diagnostic accuracy of Xpert MTB/RIF for tuberculosis (TB) pleurisy, the most common form of extrapulmonary TB. We found that our estimates differed dramatically from accuracies derived from a variety of composite reference standards.

EP19-286-22-A quarterly trend analysis of the contribution of the Wellness on Wheels intervention to TB case finding in Kano State, NigeriaThe aim of the study is to analyse the contribution of the Wellness on Wheels mobile diagnostic unit (WOW MDU) to case notifications in Kano state, Nigeria. The study showed that systematic screening using the WOW MDU is an effective method of increasing tuberculosis case notification rate and this can be scaled-up.

EP19-287-22-ARREST-TB: Accurate, Rapid, Robust and Economical diagnostic Technologies for TBWe share the significant progress made by ARREST-TB, a multilateral project funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, the Ministry of Science and High Education of Russian Federation, and India’s Department of Biotechnology, towards the development of frugal diagnostic devices for tuberculosis and drug resistance profiling.
