The USAID TB CARE II Project, implemented by University Research Co., LLC (URC), is excited to invite you to the two-day, The Future of Digital Health For Ending TB: A Virtual Learning and Knowledge Sharing Forum, to be held on September 1-2, 2020, starting at 09:00 EST (15:00 GMT)!
The two-day virtual forum will highlight digital health technologies that can be implemented throughout the TB cascade of care to maintain essential TB services, and to improve TB case detection, adherence to treatment, and treatment outcomes. The virtual forum will: 1) highlight the landscape of digital technologies currently used for TB prevention, detection and treatment; 2) present innovations in digital technologies for health, including public-private partnerships; 3) investigate the role of data analysis and analytics in controlling TB; and 4) discuss the future of TB prevention, detection, and control in a post-COVID-19 world.
If you are interested, the TB CARE II team is actively seeking speakers to present during the two-day virtual conference. Presentation topics must be submitted under one of the official tracks for the forum:
- TB digital health innovations currently implemented by programs
- Potential new innovations not yet implemented by TB Programs (e.g. more outside the traditional toolbox)
