Cost-effectiveness analysis of programmatic screening strategies for latent tuberculosis infection in the EU/EEA
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.
