“For TB patients and health care workers in Ethiopia, digital adherence technologies can truly make a difference. We look forward to implementing and providing these technologies while also generating evidence for scale-up. I hope that in the future, all TB patients in Ethiopia and elsewhere can use these technologies to help them succeed in their treatment”
