15:00 - 15:05: Introduction

15:05 - 15:13: OA-06-536-21-Community health workers augment the cascade of TB detection to care in urban slums of two metro cities in India The Tuberculosis Health Action Learning Initiative (THALI) recruited community health workers, in urban slums in two metro cities in India, to augment tuberculosis (TB) detection to care cascade. Their performance and TB treatment outcomes improve over time. It will be important to examine the cost per-TB case detected and successfully treated.


15:13 - 15:21: OA-06-537-21-Improving isoniazid preventive therapy coverage among children aged 0-14 years living with HIV through designating special clinic days: case of Kapelebyong Health Centre IV Isoniazid preventive therapy demonstrated efficacy of over 60% in preventing active tuberculosis (TB) among people with latent TB infection. However, uptake is low. People of all ages living with HIV, who attend the clinic at the same time, limits opportunities for special care, emphasising the need for age-sensitive HIV clinics to address unique challenges.

15:21 - 15:29: OA-06-538-21-Using market-based e-pharmacies for delivering free TB drugs to patients treated in the private sector: lessons learned from a pilot in Madhya Pradesh, India This innovative demonstration model of engaging e-pharmacy companies for door step delivery of national TB elimination programme-supplied anti-TB drugs, diagnostic services and treatment adherence support, to patients treated in the private sector.

15:29 - 15:37: OA-06-539-21-The potential of mHealth to improve TB awareness and case detection in Tanzania Provide support to the Tanzania National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Program (NTLP)  through the implementation of mHealth technologies to increase case detection and enhance TB knowledge among the general public in Tanzania.

15:37 - 15:45: OA-06-540-21-Identifying subpopulations at high-risk for severe adherence challenges in the treatment of multi- and extensively drug-resistant TB and HIV In generalised epidemics of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) and HIV, identifying high-risk subpopulations is critically important to improve treatment outcomes and prevent amplification of resistance. We hypothesised that an electronic dose-monitoring device could empirically identify adherence-challenged patients and that a mixed methods approach would characterise treatment challenges.
