To accelerate achieving the TB-free world, we must all keep fighting against TB.
According to the latest report of the Global Fund, the level of TB deaths in 2020 has increased to 2009 levels since the covid-19 pandemic affected health services worldwide.
Scaling up health services to people with TB is the urgent matter to ensure the level of TB deaths reduced and WHO targets for 2030 are met.
In this webinar, we will focus on a TB diagnostics tool “TB-LAMP” endorsed by WHO since 2016, and three presenters will introduce their findings through the implementation in Cameroon, Nigeria, and Viet Nam.
Moderated by Dr. Satoshi MITARAI, Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association.
