Automated smartphone-based cough audio classification for rapid tuberculosis triage testing (Cough Audio triaGE for TB) CAGE-TB. CAGE-TB aims to improve TB screening by using a smartphone app that can detect a TB cough. CAGE-TB TB cough audio will not replace normal TB testing but will be a way to filter patients most likely to have TB so that they can access specialized TB testing and care.

TB key facts?

  1. A total of 1.5 million people died from TB in 2020 (including 214 000 people with HIV). Worldwide, TB is the 13th leading cause of death and the second leading infectious killer after COVID-19 (above HIV/AIDS).
  2. In 2020, an estimated 10 million people fell ill with tuberculosis (TB) worldwide. 5.6 million men, 3.3 million women and 1.1 million children. TB is present in all countries and age groups. But TB is curable and preventable.
  3. In 2020, the 30 high TB burden countries accounted for 86% of new TB cases. Eight countries account for two thirds of new TB cases, with India leading the count, followed by China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh and South Africa.
  4. An estimated 66 million lives were saved through TB diagnosis and treatment between 2000 and 2020.
  5. Ending the TB epidemic by 2030 is among the health targets of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Genomics, Molecular and Immunology Laboratories (GMI Labs) are diagnostic, research, and training facilities, focused on both infectious and non-infectious diseases or conditions. The GMI Laboratories provide laboratory services to all healthcare providers, including physicians, researchers, epidemiologists, students, and all health care policymakers, for the benefit of patients and the global community.

The GMI Laboratories are located at the Department of Immunology and Molecular Biology, School of Biomedical Sciences, under Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS). Structure wise, they constitute two Units; The Genomics and Molecular Unit and the Immunology Unit.  The Genomics and Molecular Unit is located on the third floor (Level 3), Pathology-Microbiology Building, while the Immunology Unit is on first floor or level 1 School of Medicine building at Makerere University College of Health Sciences.

Access to the Genomics and Molecular Unit is through the Main Entrance located immediately near the elevator, with restricted access to the non-long-term staff and clients. As well, the clients and other stakeholders can access the Genomics and Molecular Biology Unit by use of stairs running from the ground floor of Pathology-Microbiology Building to the Third floor of the same building via the side where Makerere University Walter Reed Project Laboratories are located.

MML contributes significantly to the training of students at Makerere University in various ways that are highlighted below. More to this, the MML procured two overhead projectors that are being used by both undergraduate and post graduate students at the department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology & Molecular Biology and College at large.

MML administrative staff help in coordinating the Honorary Lecturers and Professors from within Uganda (e.g., staff at MRC/UVRI) and outside of Uganda.

In short words

MakBRC is a Ugandan registered Not-for-Profit Organization fully owned by Makerere University established within Makerere University College of Health Sciences.
