TB is the second leading cause of death in Malawi, following AIDS. Although the National TB Control Program (NTP) recognizes the high prevalence of this epidemic and children as a priority population, diagnosis and management of pediatric TB remains a significant challenge. In 2016, Malawi registered 16,959 TB cases (NTP, 2016 report). Childhood TB made up 8.6% of these cases.
