With a population of only 1.3 million people, eSwatini has the highest HIV prevalence of the world, with 220.000 people living with HIV. It actively deals with a dual epidemic of TB and HIV.
The Delft Approach
Early 2016, the National Tuberculosis Programme of eSwatini ordered a mobile OneStopTB clinic to screen around 100.000 inhabitants. They combined the EasyDR digital X-ray with the innovative CAD4TB software, which allowed for an instant triage of suspects. Besides this Delft delivered two EasyPortable X-rays to reach the remotest areas in the mountainous country.
Making an Impact
The triage through CAD4TB reduced the time to detect and diagnose active TB to two hours instead of days!
