About this Webinar:

TB remains a significant health concern, with millions of new cases and deaths annually. According to the 2023 WHO Global Tuberculosis Report, the annual rate of decline in TB incidence required to meet the End TB Strategy was 4-5% between 2015 and 2020, which should have accelerated to 10% per year from 2020 to 2025. However, the actual decline in TB incidence has been significantly slower. From 2015 to 2022, the cumulative reduction in the TB incidence rate was only 8.7%, far below the milestone of a 50% reduction by 2025.

Identifying and overcoming barriers by effectively implementing existing strategies and innovative tools is crucial in reducing the TB burden, particularly in resource-limited settings. Keeping this in mind, our panel of global experts will discuss their insights and the unique challenges they face in deploying digital X-ray and CAD on the ground.

Simultaneous interpretation is available for our Arabic, Urdu, French, Russian and Spanish-speaking audience. You can watch the full playlist here.
