Spiro aims to help end tuberculosis by identifying, screening, and treating child household contacts of people living with TB.

Tuberculosis (TB) is preventable and curable but is still the world’s leading infectious disease killer, causing the deaths of 1.3 million people annually and disproportionately affecting children.

Since 2015 the World Health Organization (WHO) has made TB preventative treatment a strategic priority. Household contacts should be screened for TB—those living with active TB should receive treatment and those without should receive antibiotic preventative treatment.

But we’re still failing millions of people around the world. Fewer than 1 in 3 children eligible for preventative treatment receive it globally, despite costing just $2 to $20 per child.

To help address this issue, Spiro will implement sustainable household screening programs in low and lower-middle income countries.
