Using artificial intelligence to read chest radiographs for tuberculosis detection: A multi-site evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of three deep learning systems

Deep learning (DL) neural networks have only recently been employed to interpret chest radiography (CXR) to screen and triage people for pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). No published studies have compared multiple DL systems and populations. We conducted a retrospective evaluation of three DL systems (CAD4TB, Lunit INSIGHT, and qXR) for detecting TB-associated abnormalities in chest radiographs from outpatients in Nepal and Cameroon. All 1196 individuals received a Xpert MTB/RIF assay and a CXR read by two groups of radiologists and the DL systems. Xpert was used as the reference standard.

Emergency Assistance to Migrants Stranded in Cameroon after Fleeing from the Central African Republic

(a) Objective(s): Contribute to the saving of lives, improvement in living conditions and well-being of populations in Cameroon who have fled as a result of the CAR crisis through: • Providing necessary registration and protection activities for evacuees; providing basic shelter, and NFI kits to the most vulnerable stranded migrants and returnees in transit sites before onward transportation • Assisting evacuees with health triage and referrals, as well as, pre-departure fitness to travel health checks and psychosocial

Emergency Response for IDPs and Host Communities in Northern Cameroon

Since the beginning of 2014, Northeast Nigeria has witnessed an increase in violence conducted by the insurgency group Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA), leading to widespread displacement in the country with a spillover effect in neighboring countries including Niger, Chad, and Cameroon. The internal displacement situation in Cameroon poses many humanitarian challenges, both in terms of pressing humanitarian needs for IDPs, returnees and host families.

Emergency Assistance to Conflict Affected Populations: Human Mobility Tracking and Psychosocial Support to the Most Vulnerable Mobile Populations - Cameroon

The increase of Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA) attacks on the Nigerian and Cameroonian territory since 2014 resulted in a displacement and refugee crisis. At the beginning of 2015, no system was in place to track and monitor displacement in Cameroon, resulting in a lack of clear information on the scope of the crisis and affected populations.

Emergency Assistance to Migrants Stranded in Cameroon after Fleeing from the Central African Republic

Contribute to the saving of lives and improvement in living conditions of TCNs in Cameroon who have fled CAR as a result of the CAR crisis through: - Maintaining safe and dignified transit sites with basic services (and NFIs) to shelter evacuees from CAR ahead on onward transportation -Providing necessary registration for TCNs in the North and East and protection activities for evacuees in the East Region - Assisting evacuees with health triage and referrals, as well as, pre-departure fitness to travel health checks - Transportation to final destination of TCNs and providing them with a ret

Strengthening the Involvement of the Cameroonian Diaspora in France/Belgium at the Level of Health Services and Higher Education

Ce projet a pour objectif principal d’accentuer l’implication de la diaspora Camerounaise en France/Belgique pour apporter un soutien aux objectifs de faire du Cameroun un pays émergent en 2035, notamment en ce qui concerne les priorités gouvernementales en matière de santé et d’enseignement supérieur.

United Kingdom Tuberculosis Detection Programme (UKTBP)

At the request of the Government of the United Kingdom, IOM implements the Tuberculosis (TB) Detection Programme for visa applicants who intend to stay in the UK for a period of 6 months or longer. The main purpose of the programme is to address public health concerns regarding the spread of infectious tuberculosis in the UK by preventing the entry of people suffering from active TB until they have been successfully treated, as well as to facilitate access to diagnostics and referrals for treatment in the migrants’ countries of origin.
