A Special Issue entitled “Addressing gaps in tuberculosis program implementation" in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is being planned. For detailed information on the journal, please use the following link https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
According to the World Health Organization, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, many countries were experiencing a reduction in tuberculosis incidence and mortality. However, the latest global tuberculosis report shows that there was still a large gap in TB notifications, bacteriologically confirmed cases, detection and treatment of MDR/RR-TB. A substantial scale-up of TB preventive services is needed to reduce the risk of TB infection progressing to active disease. Although funding has doubled since 2006, it has fallen far short of what is needed.
Program managers, public health specialists and researchers in the tuberculosis field have been looking at innovative tools or interventions to address the different programmatic gaps and to mitigate the negative impact of COVID-19.
The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.
