We lead an international consortium with eight partner organizations: American Thoracic Society (ATS), FHI 360, Interactive Research & Development (IRD), Japan Anti Tuberculosis Foundation (JATA), Management Sciences for Health (MSH), PATH, The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The overarching strategic objectives of Challenge TB are to improve access to quality patient centered care for TB, TB/HIV, and MDR-TB services; to prevent transmission and disease progression; and to strengthen TB platforms.

Study Description
  • In the past 10 years, inventory studies have been implemented in the Netherlands, the UK, French Guiana, Egypt, Yemen, and Iraq. Inventory studies can help to plan and implement strategies to better engage the private sector in TB care.
  • Lagos has a dynamic private health sector which plays an important role in TB diagnosis and treatment.
  • The sector has not been sufficiently enticed to contribute consistently to the notification of TB cases as required by law. A study is planned to identify the magnitude of under-reporting in both the public and private sectors, and to identify effective strategies to catalyze timely notification.

  • Assess bias in recruitment, and recommend ways to address if required.
  • Draft syntax to permit the calculation of notification rates, completeness rates, matching rates, under and over reporting, and their confidence 95% intervals (CI).
  • Conduct routine logic checks of the data and alert the team (in writing) to any and all data quality challenges.
  • Verify during the analysis stage whether survey data are self-weighting and perform any corrections that may be required given the actual size of various clusters and the current population.
  • Adjust estimates to take into account cluster sampling
  • Conduct intermediate analysis of preliminary merges of all registered TB case lists to detect and correct inconsistencies and errors, flag issues promptly, and provide interim reports to various stakeholders.-
  • Create tables, graphs, and models, for presentation
  • Liaise with HQ staff to ensure per-protocol sampling, stratification, and analysis.
  • Represent the study in international data analysis workshops if required.
  • Work closely with IT / Data Management consultant and Clinical Coordinator
Technical Qualifications
  • PhD in Statistics, Epidemiology, or Mathematics.
  • Demonstrated competence in (bio)statistics, survey methodology, stratification, sampling, weighting, matching, randomization, etc..

  • Expertise in the management of missing data particularly via multiple imputation (or willingness to learn).
