Abstract

To control and prevent outbreaks, public health programs in all countries, regardless of tuberculosis (TB) incidence, must maintain the capacity to perform core control and prevention activities. These include diagnosing and treating cases, contact investigations, and infection prevention and control activities. Congregate settings and healthcare facilities demand special attention, because of the potential for outbreaks associated with infectious cases in these settings. Since almost one-fourth of the world population is thought to be infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, enhanced efforts to diagnose and treat latent TB infection are needed to prevent future cases and accelerate progress towards TB elimination.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 July 2018.
All research outputs
#3,592,176
of 13,266,991 outputs
Outputs from Israel Journal of Health Policy Research
#62
of 364 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#92,919
of 267,977 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Israel Journal of Health Policy Research
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,266,991 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 364 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.6. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,977 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 65% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
