EP31-394-24-TB case yield of at-risk groups using modified screening algorithm in Nigeria secondary and tertiary healthcare facilitiesSystematic screening for tuberculosis (TB) in health facility settings and among priority groups, remains an important active case finding strategy in high burden TB countries.

EP31-395-24-Engaging informal healthcare providers in TB case identification: experiences from a project in IndiaInformal providers provide the bulk of the initial medical care for people in low-income communities. Tuberculosis (TB) care provided by these informal providers is characterised as non-diagnosis, misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis and/or inappropriate treatment. Engaging them in TB care is crucial in reducing the delay in diagnosis and for the initiation of treatment.

EP31-398-24-TB care in prisons in New DelhiPrison facilities encounter turmoil in the challenges faced in tuberculosis (TB) control practices due to a continuous high turnover of prisoners. This causes an increased chance of disease transmission in larger communities on their exposure. A cross-sectional survey was conducted utilising active case finding tools to study epidemiological parameters and concoct interventions following their release.

EP31-399-24-How community pharmacies can contribute to early detection and treatment of TB patients in Viet Nam: a cross-sectional, simulated client surveyEarly diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis (TB) is important for control, particularly in high burden settings. Pharmacies may serve as a conduit for referring presumptive TB patients for clinical investigation. Using a cross-sectional survey, we evaluated if community pharmacies in Viet Nam were capable of referring a simulated client with presumptive TB.

EP31-400-24-Police become partners in the gight against TB: experience from Kiambu County, KenyaTuberculosis (TB) case identification and infection prevention remain a challenge in the Kenya police service. Police staff, accused persons and reportees are at increased risk of TB due to the overcrowding and poor ventilation of police cells, vans and court holdings. Public health facilities are also less accessible and require travel time.

Training and the institution of an OPD team showed a remarkable improvement in the total number of cases identified in this facility.
