The topic for the TB MAC Symposium at the Union conference this year was ‘Modelling to support acceleration toward elimination’ and was held on Friday the 13th of October, from 10:30-12:00, in Jalisco Hall 10.
There is an urgent need to accelerate efforts toward elimination, now that the WHO End TB Strategy and the Stop TB Global Plan to End TB are in place.
Mathematical modelling is a critical tool for exploring the health impacts, cost-effectiveness and resource implications of future TB care and prevention options.
In this session, we present new results on four key modelling initiatives supporting acceleration toward elimination, and a country level NTP perspective on the pros and cons of modelling for country level decision making.
