TB-Speed

TB-Speed

A research project to strengthen paediatric tuberculosis services for enhanced early detection, the TB-SPEED project will carry out research activities aimed at reducing childhood mortality from TB by evaluating innovative cost-effective approaches for resource-limited settings. The diagnostic approach will include procurement and use of a molecular diagnostic assay applied on nasopharyngeal aspirate and stool sample, introduction of digital chest radiography, as well as training and mentoring of clinicians for screening and diagnosis of paediatric TB.

Implemented over a period of four years in seven countries of Africa and Asia (Cambodia, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Zambia), the project will contribute to screening of a total of approximately 77,000 children.
