The elimination of tuberculosis (TB) in Europe will require the management of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in key populations. Management of LTBI requires the identification and adequate treatment of infected people. It is currently unknown how screening and treatment of key populations should be best organised to have the highest impact with the available resources.

ECDC Calculator - LTBI control in European countries

tool -

The ECDC Calculator- LTBI control in European countries is an Excel tool based on a tuberculosis transmission model with the purpose to assess different screening strategies for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI).
This tool uses data from four pilot countries to estimate annual tuberculosis incidence and to predict the costs and effect of different LTBI screening strategies over a 20-year period.
