Dr. Chen Bin, Zhejiang Provincial Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Division Chief in Department of TB Control, China gives guest lecture at DLSPH:

Tuberculosis (TB) is a public health threat globally. Frequent exposure to Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) puts healthcare workers at a high risk of infection with TB. Despite impressive progress on TB control in the past decade, control measures for nosocomial TB infection were still inadequate and health workers were facing high risk of TB infections. Latent infection (LTBI) ranged from 34% to 77% in hospitals of China. Here we report LTBI among health workers in 31 TB hospitals in Zhejiang in 2015, and their beliefs and prevention measures for TB.

Dr. Chen Bin has served as division chief at the Zhejiang Centre for Disease Control and Prevention for more than 10 years. His research focuses on TB infection control and the social determinants of TB. He has been a primary investigator on grants from the Chinese National Natural Science and received his MD from Zhejiang University and his MPH from the University of Leeds, UK.
