TB Initiative Overview

 WFPI's Childhood TB Group aims to impact on Childhood TB diagnosis using radiology in low resource areas. To this end it aims to:

  • Create a bank of educational literature (education and information dissemination on TB facts in the form of reviews, features, and caseseries) andshort videos on Childhood TB, produced for WFPI's TB Corner by the TB Group and available for wide onward circulation. Maximum dissemination is our goal! Authors thus far identified from Philippines, Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia and South Africa. 

  • Collect existing TB literature and web-based TB learning material and host it on TB Corner as a reliable resource 
  • Support facilities and TB activities in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe through a "hotline" of TB specialists providing second opinions, guidance and targeted education and training 
  • Initiate and participate in Childhood TB research

Papers included in the 2017 Pediatric Radiology Tuberculosis Mini-symposium are available for free download (open source), due to Dr. Savvas Andronikou efforts. Please feel free to download and  distribute them."
