Public call for data to inform an update of WHO guidance on IGRAs for detection of TB infection

The World Health Organization (WHO) plans to update its guidance on use of interferon-gamma release assays (IGRAs) for the detection of TB infection. The aim of the update is to compare new (index) IGRAs with the IGRAs currently recommended by WHO (reference tests) for the diagnosis of TB infection.

To support this process, WHO is issuing a public call for data, appealing to national TB programs, implementers, industry, researchers, manufacturers and other agencies to provide suitable evidence on the use of IGRAs for detection of TB infection.

Relevant data is collected until 30 June 2024.

Full details about the call are available here.
