Abstract

Md Abdul Kuddus used mathematical modelling to investigate the transmission of tuberculosis in Bangladesh, and identify optimal intervention strategies. He found that without rapid improvements in treatment quality the incidence of drug-resistant tuberculosis will continue to rise; whilst reasonable scale-ups of existing control measures can eliminate all tuberculosis in Bangladesh.
