Mathematical modelling of programmatic screening strategies for latent tuberculosis infection in countries with low tuberculosis incidence

Technical report

Elimination of tuberculosis (TB) requires the management of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in key populations. Thus, people with LTBI need to be diagnosed and treated with appropriate regimens. It is unknown how different screening and treatment strategies of key populations affect TB transmission and progress toward elimination.

ECDC Calculator - LTBI control in European countries

Tool -

The ECDC Calculator- LTBI control in European countries is an Excel tool based on a tuberculosis transmission model with the purpose to assess different screening strategies for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI).
This tool uses data from four pilot countries to estimate annual tuberculosis incidence and to predict the costs and effect of different LTBI screening strategies over a 20-year period.
