About This Event

TB screening of migrants has been conducted for decades. Following emergency situations requiring immediate adaption of policy, new scientific evidence, and WHO recommendations, Dutch TB screening policies have been evolving over the years. Currently, the former TB screening by chest X-ray is being replaced step by step with TBI screening. During this presentation, Ineke Spruijt will present on the TB screening policies and practice in the Netherlands, and the lessons learned from the implementation studies on TBI screening among migrants(TB END Point project).
