getTBinR: Access and Summarise World Health Organisation Tuberculosis data

Quickly and easily import analysis ready Tuberculosis (TB) burden data, from the World Health Organisation (WHO), into R. The aim of getTBinR is to allow researchers, and other interested individuals, to quickly and easily gain access to a detailed TB data set and to start using it to derive key insights. It provides a consistent set of tools that can be used to rapidly evaluate hypotheses on a widely used data set before they are explored further using more complex methods or more detailed data. These tools include: generic plotting and mapping functions; a data dictionary search tool; an interactive shiny dashboard; and an automated, country level, TB report. For newer R users, this package reduces the barrier to entry by handling data import, munging, and visualisation. All plotting and mapping functions are built with ggplot2 so can be readily extended.
