The TB Care II project team shares its results on the success of integrating FAST activities into the regular daily activities at hospitals in Vietnam. This helped shorten the infectious periods and reduce times to diagnosis and treatment initiation. It also allowed existing hospital staff to easily and routinely monitor FAST time indicators for improvement. Overall, it enables NTP's steps for gradually and sustainably expanding FAST implementation to other facilities of the NTP network.
