A paper by the E-DETECT TB team looking at national TB strategies in Europe has just been published.
“Effectiveness of interventions for reducing TB incidence in countries with low TB incidence: a systematic review of reviews” was led by consortium members from Public Health England.
In the paper, the authors discuss their systematic review of interventions for TB control and prevention relevant to low TB incidence settings (<10 cases per 100 000 population). They concluded that the review had demonstrated “a need for stronger evidence to support expert opinion and country experience when formulating TB control policy.”
