X out TB”: Monitoring Patient Compliance with Tuberculosis Treatment Regimens has been selected for funding under 3ie’s first round of Open Window grants

by iihlab

XoutTB has been selected for funding by the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation towards the evaluation of a clinical trial in Karachi, Pakistan, an IIH H-Lab site under the direction of a Dr. Aamir Khan and his colleagues at InterActive Research and Development. The funding provides an exciting development in the application of a multidisciplinary approach to compliance of tuberculosis treatment. XoutTB combines novel diagnostics, telemedicine and incentives to keep patients on track with their tuberculosis medication. The project began as a 2007 MIT IDEAS competition winner and has since become an IIH project with R&D in Cambridge, Nicaragua and Pakistan.
