Data from all settings consistently show that opportunities to prevent TB disease in children are missed frequently which causes unnecessary TB related morbidity and mortality. Among the exposed children who are offered treatment for infection, very few children successfully complete treatment. Our research team is working with colleagues in several Southern African sites to identify better approaches to capture children at risk of infection, better diagnostics to confirm infection, and better systems to support families to complete TB treatment.
