A rapid assessment of prevailing policies on tuberculosis

Dec 12, 2011 · Contact investigation contributes to improving early case detection of tuberculosis (TB). However, its implementation in low-income, high TB burden countries remains limited. A multicountry survey of contact investigation policies was conducted to evaluate the extent of their implementation. Comparative Meta-Analysis of Tuberculosis Contact Mar 26, 2015 · Screening of household contacts of tuberculosis (TB) patients is a recommended strategy to improve early case detection. While it has been widely implemented in low prevalence countries, the most optimal protocols for contact investigation in high prevalence, low resource settings is yet to be determined.

Contact investigation for tuberculosis:a systematic

Investigation of contacts of patients with tuberculosis (TB) is a priority for TB control in high-income countries, and is increasingly being considered in resource-limited settings.

Identifying barriers to and facilitators of tuberculosis

Mar 09, 2017 · The World Health Organization recommends routine household tuberculosis contact investigation in high-burden countries but adoption has been limited. We sought to identify barriers to and facilitators of TB contact investigation during its introduction in Kampala, Uganda. TB SIMULATED PATIENTSInterviewing a suspected/verified TB patient (index patient) for the purpose of a contact investiga-tion is an integral part of tuberculosis (TB) control. An effective TB interview requires skill and practice.

The main courses that teach the basic TB patient care skills are:1) TB Update and Skin Test Certification, 2) Contact Investigation/Directly Observed Therapy and 3) TB Case Management. In addition, the major two CDC conferences on TB are held annually in Georgia, providing opportunity for a well trained Tuberculosis Screening and Testing:Health Care Initial risk assessment, testing, and symptom evaluation can serve as a baseline should an exposure occur and a T contact investigation become necessary.

Using the CDC framework for program evaluation in public

Dec 03, 2003 · CONCLUSION:The CDC's framework provided a useful methodology for beginning the assessment process for evaluating TB contact investigation programs. When the contact investigation self-evaluation tools are implemented statewide, the findings will be used to target areas in need of improvement and develop strategies to make noteworthy changes. WHO Contact investigationFurthermore, contact investigation can help identify people who require careful follow-up, such as those who were exposed to an index case of multi-drug-resistant or extensively drug-resistant TB or people infected with HIV, whose risk for rapid progression to active TB is very high. Effective investigation of TB contacts within national TB programmes and other services can result in the detection of a significant Assessment of tuberculosis contact investigation in Results. A total of 4584 close contacts of 1765 contagious TB index cases were followed up for an average of 4 years. About 62 contacts (333/100 000, 95% CI:256428) developed TB excluding 6 co-prevalent cases. The contact cases consisted 1.50% (39/2592) of all the bacteria-positive cases in population. Transmission links were confirmed in 60% (9/15) familial contacts and 22% (2/9) in non
