EVIDENCE OF IMPACT

On average, treatment for each patient with TB costs between $250 to $650 and takes 6 to 9 months for a cure. For a single patient with MDR TB, treatment can cost between $1,200 to $5,000, lasts for two years and only about 50-60% are cured. Containment of TB assumes that each positive patient is found and effectively treated in a timely manner to stop the spread of disease. But if a country has a loss to follow-up rate of 15-30%...

 

Supposing such a country has 50,000 positive TB cases, but only 35,000 begin treatment and the rest are lost to follow-up. How many secondary transmissions would be caused by the untreated 15,000? The WHO states people with active TB can infect 5-15 others through close contact over the course of a year. So between 75,000 and 225,000. How can any program win against TB when loss to follow up keeps causing setbacks of this magnitude?

A strong connectivity system helps reduce or eliminate loss to follow up, and this can be calculated in terms of QALYs saved and DALYs averted. The costs of providing connected TB diagnostics can also be calculated.
