In 2020, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) had approximately 90 million people. Within its population, a staggering amount of 286,000 estimated people developed TB. Among them, 38,000 were children. Furthermore, there were 85,045 missing people with TB (15,660 were children).
As part of the iNTP project (funded by USAID, supported by the Stop TB Partnership), Delft Imaging delivered eight Delft Light portable backpack X-rays and eight CAD4TB artificial intelligence software installations in 2021 to support tuberculosis screening in the most remote corners of the country. The project was delivered to the National Tuberculosis Program, part of the Ministry of Health in DRC and featured installation and training services provided onsite and in French.
