|General Description of the Research Project||Tuberculosis (TB) elimination requires new enhanced intervention strategies. This research project aims to confirm whether neighbourhoods of TB cases in Indonesia constitute a high TB prevalence and incidence subpopulation for targeted intervention. We will conduct active case finding in both TB households and their neighbouring households and use epidemiological and molecular tools to inform the design of possible intervention strategies.|
