[podcast] Vietnam study: 68% drop in TB if we screen all (not just those with symptoms) and link to standard treatment and care pathway

Vietnam study shows 68% drop in new TB cases if we screen everyone (not just those with symptoms) and link them with standard treatment, care and support pathway. It is important to underline that Vietnam study had deployed WHO recommended molecular tests upfront to confirm TB (and rifampicin-resistant TB) and link those diagnosed with active TB disease to standard care.

This podcast features study co-author Associate Professor Dr Nguyen Binh Hoa, who is also the Vice Manager of Vietnam National TB Programme, Vice Director of National Lung Hospital, and Director of Vietnam Integrated Center for TB and Respirology Research (VICTORY), and Vice Director of Vietnam Global Fund TB project.
