TB-IPD platform

The TB treatment individual patient data platform (TB-IPD) is a collaborative initiative to support the generation of reliable evidence on the treatment of TB to inform future TB treatment guidelines. It is supported by the WHO Global TB Programme and maintained by UCL.

The purpose of the TB-IPD is to facilitate pooling of individual patient data provided by researchers, or local or national tuberculosis programmes in the context of TB treatment and facilitate policy update, development and public health research. 

Research groups may apply for access to some or all of the datasets, which will be supplied fully anonymised.  Access to the data will be governed by a Data Access Committee, with representation from the data owners.
