Diagnostic practices and estimated burden of tuberculosis among children admitted to 13 government hospitals in Kenya

New study from Kenya: More than half of all paediatric admissions had symptoms associated with TB and nearly two-thirds had more specific history documented. Only a few amongst them got TB tests requested. TB was diagnosed in 2.9% of all admissions but most were inadequately investigated.

I always love it when people from my country undertake such important research. More an more should be done to elevate research in TB diagnostics across Kenya and sub-saharan Africa
