It’s estimated that 10 Million people worldwide fell ill with TB in 2018. And 1.5 Million of them died from the disease. But TB is curable. It’s clear that our traditional toolkit is simply not adequate or sufficiently effective.
Fortunately, emerging technologies show significant promise in addressing the unmet needs of people affected by TB. AI-powered tools are helping care providers with everything from diagnosis to data analysis. Adherence technologies support patients and enable differentiated care. Custom dashboards are informing care decisions and facilitating virtual, patient-centric consultations. And new digital health technologies are being developed every day.
