An Individual Patient Data Meta-Analysis of Eleven Projects across Ten High Tuberculosis-Burden Countries

Worldwide, non-adherence to tuberculosis (TB) treatment is problematic. Digital adherence technologies (DATs) offer a person-centered approach to support and monitor treatment. This paper explores adherence over time while using DATs using a meta-analysis on anonymized longitudinal adherence data for drug-susceptible TB and drug-resistant TB populations from 11 DAT projects.

    After many years of TB ‘control’ and incremental progress, the TB community is talking about ending the disease, yet this will only be possible with a shift in the way we approach the TB response. While the Asia-Pacific region has the highest TB burden worldwide, it also has the opportunity to lead the quest to […]
