The NTEP (National TB Elimination Program) along with USAID aims to aid innovators and leverage emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate tuberculosis elimination efforts. The NTEP has identified areas and articulated problems within the TB cascade of care that are AI-amenable. However, the NTEP is aware that this is a non-exhaustive list and is open to exploring new problem areas and solutions.
The purpose of this document is to motivate and invite individuals and organizations to develop AI-based solutions for TB. The conclusion section of the document describes the process for engaging with the NTEP and USAID on such solutions.
