Teal slide with 'TB Centre Event' in white writing

Helen Jenkins will present three pieces of work that all use routinely collected tuberculosis data: 1) assessing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on TB notifications in Ukraine and the implications for the current Russian war, 2) estimating of the risk of recurrence and rifampicin resistance for individuals that have received less than 6 months of TB treatment in Ukraine, 3) risk factors and timing of TB recurrence in South Africa.
