EP32-404-24-Evaluation of TB active case finding cascade: results from a TB surge intervention in Akwa Ibom State, NigeriaActively finding tuberculosis through screening of all hospital attendees and instituting multiple testing options, will widen the chances of finding the missing cases within the health facility. Due to poor health-seeking behaviour and lack of awareness, most persons will not seek medical attention because of a cough.

EP32-405-24-Pay for performance to optimise the TB care cascade and improve quality of services at high volume health facilities in KenyaThrough Global Fund support, Amref Health Africa - in collaboration with the national tuberculosis (TB) programme in Kenya - is implementing a pay for performance initiative in 197 high volume health facilities in 13 high TB burden counties. Facilities earn money for additional TB cases notified and quality of TB services offered.

EP32-406-24-Cascade analysis for active TB case finding intervention in Nigeria: a tool for quality improvement and programme monitoringKNCV Nigeria constructed a cascade to assess clients’ retention across tuberculosis (TB) screening stages. Based on epidemiological data, we set targets for each stage and designed a template for weekly data monitoring and cascade analysis to measure gaps. We did root cause analysis and designed specific interventions to address identified gaps.

EP32-407-24-Impact of TB cascade loss in a facility-based, intensified TB case finding intervention in Nasarawa State, NigeriaThe review of the impact of loss of patients in a cascade during facility-based screening activities has the potential to undermine efforts to find missing tuberculosis (TB) cases in Nigeria. This can lead to programmatic under-reporting and an increase in the spread of TB in communities

EP32-408-24-Implementation and scale-up of TB Clinic-Laboratory Continuous Quality Improvement (TB CLICQI) in Nigeria: Lessons learntTuberculosis clinic/laboratory continuous quality improvement (TB CLICQI) was a proof of concept in Nigeria. It was piloted and implemented in Benue State and the outcome fueled the scale-up. This present study documents the impact and lessons learned during the scale-up at selected states and health facilities.

EP32-409-24-Finding additional TB cases through symptom screening for diagnosis in high burden setting: cough of two weeks is not enoughSystematic 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.

EP32-410-24-Prevalence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in sputum among adult clinic attendees compared with the surrounding community in rural South Africa: implications for finding the missing millionsThis analysis compares the findings of a tuberculosis prevalence survey, conducted within primary healthcare clinics, to a community-based survey during the same period. Characteristics of enrolled participants, as well as those with a sputum culture positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, are compared.

EP32-411-24-A country tailored package approach to TB case finding: Challenge TB project experience across 23 countriesHierarchy of tuberculosis (TB) case finding interventions, based on yield, from strengthening healthcare facility TB screening (highest) to TB index case contact investigation (least) and the use of a package approach, driven by patient health-seeking behaviour, and pathway to accessing TB diagnosis and care.

EP32-412-24-Enhancing the performance of newly established TB services sites through the incorporation of structured demand creation activities in Nigeria: findings from a non-randomised intervention studyTuberculosis (TB) prevention is largely ensured by early case identification and treatment in Nigeria among the non-HIV infected populations. Enhancing the performance of newly established TB service sites, through the incorporation of structured demand creation activities, improves case detection and, thus, prevention of TB.

EP32-413-24-Towards achieving UN General Assembly political declaration on HIV and AIDS: commitment on TB case finding among PLHIV, in IndiaThe study assesses the improvement in coverage of intensified case finding among persons living with HIV, in India, as a result of a collaborative, multipronged approach involving capacity building and periodic supervision of the activity.
