TB-SPEED PNEUMONIA STUDY FIRST RESULTS
The TB-Speed consortium under the leadership of the university of Bordeaux is organizing the final restitution of the results of the TB-Speed project in Maputo, Mozambique on June 9 and 10, 2022.
This project, which aims to reduce TB mortality in children by improving diagnosis, was deployed between 2017 and 2022 in seven countries with a high incidence of TB and limited-resources: Cambodia, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zambia.
The international symposium for the restitution of the results organized in collaboration with the National Institute of Health (INS) in Mozambique will bring together the consortium members, partners, the scientific committee of the project, as well as key actors in the fight against tuberculosis with representatives of the national programs of the seven countries where the project has been implemented, representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the project funders (Unitaid, The Initiative and ANRS|Emerging infectious diseases).
