Dr Jingtao Gao , China
I was impressed by this advanced tuberculosis (TB) course that took all of us participants from theory to practice in TB care and prevention. It was well designed and meticulously implemented. It provided plenty of up-to-date supporting resources and articles and we got a chance to experience what happens in real life during the field visits. The faculty chosen for this course was exceptionally good and engaging. I have already applied data-driven supervision and capacity building through sharing evidence-based inputs in my work.

Dr Serge Ade , Bénin
Ma participation au Cours International pour le contrôle de la tuberculose organisé par l’Union remonte à cinq ans. Jeune pneumologue ayant fraîchement fini sa formation spécialisée, j’étais naïvement convaincu d’être suffisamment outillé pour prendre correctement en charge la tuberculose.
Mais étonnamment, ce fut trois semaines riches en enseignements et en partage d’expériences avec des praticiens venus de divers horizons, appuyés par des exercices pratiques qui reflètent les difficultés quotidiennement rencontrées lors de la prise en charge des patients.
Cristina Celan , Republic of Moldova
I had high hopes for the Performance-Oriented Project Management class, and it met all of my expectations. Interestingly, it did this in part by cementing what I already knew as well as providing new ideas.
