INnovative data Science to Impact the TB Epidemic (INSITE)
No website available
New drugs and shortened combination regimens have been introduced for the prevention and treatment drug-susceptible and drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) but their impact on pregnant people and their infants, including TB transmission and pediatric TB, is uncertain. This partnership between the Centre for Infectious Disease Epidemiology & Research, University of Cape Town and the Western Cape Health Intelligence Directorate will consolidate existing relationships across clinical, epidemiological and data science disciplines to establish a scalable data infrastructure for the management of maternal TB at the regional and individual clinical levels. Data science techniques will be employed to develop and enhance a novel and robust public service population-level data harmonization platform to i) create actionable clinical tools to optimize person-level interventions and monitor programs; ii) generate large, linked cohorts to address epidemiological questions and assess the impact of policy interventions and clinical tools at the population and individual levels.
