In addition to the development of new treatments, the use of innovative patient support technologies such as digital adherence technologies (DATs) offer hope in the fight against tuberculosis. During this webinar we will share (1) experiences from countries that introduced these technologies, (2) provide a synthesis of the evidence on the impact of these technologies in both clinical trials and programs and (3) describe how Unite4TB will employ these innovate patient support technologies as part of the planned trials.
The aim is to provide participants with valuable insights, experiences, and evidence related to DATs, enabling them to expand their knowledge base, make informed decisions, and potentially apply these technologies effectively in clinical practice or research settings.
Webinar will be divided into 2 parts (of approximately 30 mins. each):
