Symposium 25:Case Finding: Active Case Finding and Systemic Screening

Systematic screening for TB disease can find patients with TB who may be missed by passive TB case detection and patients with TB earlier to reduce transmission, morbidity, mortality, and financial hardship. This symposium will bring together health professionals and researchers to discuss the screening for TB in targeted populations and tools for screening for TB using a symptom screen, chest X-ray, or molecular WHO-recommended rapid diagnostic tests, alone or in combination. This active case finding is evidenced-based and integrated with overall national TB and health systems activities to achieve Universal Health Coverage for TB care and the END TB targets.
