Leveraging technology to find missing cases of tuberculosis

Partner since

A Global Fund priority is to find as many of the missing TB cases as possible. Activities focused around detecting more TB cases are critical. The Global Fund and Google Cloud partnered starting in 2019 to leverage Google Cloud’s expertise in artificial intelligence, data analytics and visualization to help identify the missing cases of TB in India, a country which has the highest TB burden worldwide. Together with India’s Central TB Division, Google aims to develop a system that continuously searches for missing high-burden areas of TB not yet identified across the country, ultimately resulting in the provision of timely treatment.
