The Concentration of Tuberculosis within Paraguay’s Incarcerated and Indigenous Populations, 2018-2022

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

In collaboration with Paraguay's National Program for Tuberculosis Control (NPTC), we conducted a spatial analysis of tuberculosis (TB) cases in Paraguay from 2018-2022, in order to identify areas of high transmission and the communities at highest risk. This work aims to help prioritize NPTC control efforts. We found that Indigenous and incarcerated populations make up a high proportion of TB cases in Paraguay, and observed that TB case notifications are spatially concentrated.
