POSTER - INA TIME - Reaching the Unreported TB Patient in Hospitals through Active Surveillance: Urgent Need to Strengthen Hospital Internal Network
The Indonesia Inventory Study 2017 showed under-reporting of TB cases in Indonesia was 41%, while in hospitals were 62%. An estimate of 450,000 TB cases reported by hospitals nationwide (the Hospital Information System/HIS, 2017). In 6 Challenge TB (CTB) project supported provinces, around 53% of TB notification was from hospitals. An action to find unreported TB patients in hospitals, both in Indonesia and in CTB supported provinces, are needed.
