Diagnostic connectivity

Rapid and accurate diagnosis of TB is essential to start treatment on time, and ultimately, control of the TB epidemic by limiting transmission. Faster laboratory feedback (to clinician, TB program and patient) can be achieved by connecting diagnostic devices to online platforms, which also supports building better linkages between diagnosis and treatment initiation. KNCV supports the implementation of diagnostic connectivity tools such as GxAlert to build a national network of connected GeneXpert MTB/RIF devices in several countries and supports National TB programs (NTP’s) to build capacity to use the available information for informed decision making.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 117 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB control, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
