    This guide, How to Organize Training for Health Facility Staff on TB Control, is for provincial or district level staff responsible for training health facility staff who detect and treat cases of tuberculosis (TB). This guide explains options for using the course Management of Tuberculosis: Training for Health Facility Staff. The national TB control programme will determine how the course is to be used in a particular country and will make any necessary adaptations in the course materials. This guide is for the staff who will implement training at the provincial or district level, according to directives from the national level.


    Part of a set of materials for the course Management of Tuberculosis : Training for Health Facility Staff.

    This guide and the related set of training modules for health facility staff were prepared by the Stop TB Department, World Health Organization, Geneva, through a contract with ACT International, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The project was coordinated by Karin Bergstrom; Fabio Luelmo was the main technical adviser. The American Lung Association (ALA), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, and the Royal Netherlands Tuberculosis Association (KNCV) have all contributed to the development of the modules through the Task Force Training (TFT) of the Tuberculosis Coalition for Technical Assistance (TBCTA). The modules were field-tested in Malawi through the support of the National Tuberculosis Control Programme of Malawi.
