Counting sick children: estimating the global burden of childhood tuberculosis

Location

Engineering Front Suite 103 | Engineering Building (link Map)
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

UCL-TB is pleased to announce that Helen Jenkins will giving the first UCL-TB Winter Seminar 2016.

Childhood tuberculosis (TB) has traditionally been neglected because children are believed to be less likely to contribute to transmission and because paediatric tuberculosis is difficult to diagnose. As a result, we have a poor understanding of how many children develop this disease worldwide each year, how many are suffering from drug-resistant disease and how many die from TB. Dr Jenkins will describe why such basic statistics are difficult to estimate and explain recent developments in this area and why they are important to reduce morbidity and mortality in children with TB.

This seminar will be followed, after a short break, by the North London TB Journal Club presented by Patrick Djomo of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Please feel free to join us afterwards for a drink a the Marlborough Pub just down the road.
