New digital technologies for TB detection added to the GDF catalog

The Stop TB Partnership’s Global Drug Facility (GDF) announced the inclusion in its catalog, for the first time ever, of two ultra-portable digital X-ray systems and two software packages for the computer-aided detection of TB based on artificial intelligence. These important digital tools to combat TB will be made available at a reduced cost to all TB programs in low- and middle-income countries.

To help facilitate uptake of these new technologies, the Stop TB Partnership also launched a Practical guide on screening and triage for TB using computer-aided detection technology and ultra-portable X-ray systems.
