PLOS ONE Study On Breakthrough TB Helps Inform Global TB, HIV Response

FHI 360’s “R&E Search for Evidence”: New analysis of breakthrough TB in Ethiopia can inform global TB response
Corey White, managing editor of R&E Search for Evidence discusses results and key takeaways from a new PLOS ONE article on “breakthrough TB.” White writes, “Studies that determine how common breakthrough TB among PLHIV actually is and what factors influence its development can better inform health care providers and policymakers as well as provide additional evidence to support test-and-treat strategies. In this post, I summarize how the new PLOS ONE article accomplishes both. … Overlooking vital preventative treatments like isoniazid can stop us from eliminating either epidemic” (2/21).
