EP30-384-24-Active TB case finding targeted at high burden health facilities in Nigeria: results from a pilot interventionSystematic screening for tuberculosis (TB) in health facility settings and among priority groups remains an important active case finding strategy in high TB burden countries. National TB programmes will benefit through more attention to accurate diagnosis and earlier start of treatment.

EP30-385-24-Improving TB case finding in hospital outpatient departments: lessons from a health system strengthening approachSystematic screening for tuberculosis (TB) in health facility settings and among priority groups remains an important active case finding strategy in high TB burden countries. National TB programmes will benefit through more attention to accurate diagnosis and earlier start of treatment.

EP30-386-24-Achieving End TB Strategy: screening for TB in pregnant and non-pregnant women in reproductive age group. Findings from an observational study in Pune, IndiaReproductive age women face a higher risk of tuberculosis (TB) transmission, morbidity and mortality. But women’s access to healthcare is restricted. This study discusses prevalence of active/suspected and latent TB in pregnant and non-pregnant women screened for TB in a hospital in Pune, India. It also discusses he challenges faced for screening.

EP30-387-24-Active case finding for TB among factory workers in Punjab, IndiaFactories are one of the key areas for tuberculosis (TB) prevention and control activities. However, an apprehension of losing employment continues to deter factory workers from participating in TB screening. In close co-ordination with factory owners, active case finding at factories can increase awareness and confidence among workers to seek care.

EP30-388-24-TB treatment outcomes among patients identified through active case finding in a high-density, urban township in Lusaka, ZambiaActive case finding is gaining traction as a means to find missing TB cases in communities as we aim to achieve the End TB Strategy. It identifies individuals who otherwise would spread the disease and further fuel the epidemic. Ever wondered what happens to TB patients identified in this manner?

EP30-389-24-The yield of school-based active TB case finding in Oromia Region of EthiopiaIn the Oromia Region of Ethiopia, which has a high TB burden, school-based TB screening is an advantage. Additional TB cases can be identified in school settings and there is the added advantage of engaging school students in community and household presumptive TB referrals.

EP30-390-24-Strengthening active TB case finding: results from using an active case finding toolkit at health facilities in UgandaWith one-quarter of estimated tuberculosis (TB) patients missed, the Ugandan Ministry of Health developed active case finding toolkits to improve the quality of TB screening, case detection and treatment at health facilities. Strengthening health worker capacity to implement the toolkit improved performance and should be scaled-up to address gaps in TB notification.

EP30-391-24-Active TB case finding among HIV key populations and their contacts: an effective intervention modelThe key populations (KPs) for HIV (MSM and FSW) and their close community (KPC) are at an increased risk of tuberculosis (TB). Active TB case finding activities from PSI TOP centres can detect additional TB cases among non PLHIV KPs and their contacts and percentage of TB cases were higher than KPs.

EP30-392-24-Integrating TB case finding into house-to-house polio vaccination campaigns: findings from the July 2019 supplemental immunisation activities in Anambra State, NigeriaWe leveraged the World Health Organization-supported community polio vaccination structure to integrate tuberculosis (TB) case finding into a house-to-house vaccination campaign. Presumptive and confirmed TB cases were reported through the process. Our report shows that the intervention was most productive in peri-urban slums, riverine and hard-to-reach areas.

EP30-393-24-Intensified case finding among outpatients and their companions by using chest X-ray with artificial intelligence software for TB triaging in the PhilippinesThe companions of patients are not usually part of intensified case finding (ICF) for tuberculosis (TB). We included them in ICF in the Philippines by using chest X-ray with artificial intelligence software for TB triage, which resulted in a high TB case yield, from both patients and companions.
