Why join?

Ending tuberculosis (TB) is possible only when we accurately diagnose TB early, treat the person with drugs-that-work, help support adherence and address other issues as per the WHO End TB Strategy.

This study assessed the impact of up-front Xpert MTB/RIF testing on detection of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) and rifampicin-resistant PTB (DR-TB) cases in India. The study results provide a solid rationale/ evidence on how important it could be for progressing towards ending TB.

This webinar will provide you an opportunity to have a direct interface with study author(s), lead TB experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) and International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union). Learn about study findings and ask questions from the experts!
