Treatment of Tuberculosis (TB)

The TB course is intended as a refresher course for physicians (both public and private) that may be involved in the management and care of patients with TB. The course is developed as a preparation course to the MDR-TB course of WMA and both courses together offer a complete summary of management of TB. The refresher course will provide basic clinical care information for TB including the latest diagnostics, treatment and information about multidrug-resistant TB. It will also provide information on how to ensure patient adherence and infection control and will include many aspects of TB care and management with a global scope so that it can be used across regions.

The course is based on the International Standards for Tuberculosis Care (ISTC), which presents a set of widely-accepted, evidence-based standards that all practitioners, public and private, should seek to achieve. It also refers to and is consistent with the World Health Organization (WHO) Guidelines and recommendations for TB control. The course is produced by The World Medical Association, originally funded by the MDR-TB partnership, the update funded by the USAID TB CARE II project, implemented by University Research Co.LLC with technical assistance from the Global Tuberculosis Institute at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
