International Clinical and Programmatic TB-HIV Course

International Clinical and Programmatic TB-HIV Course

The International Clinical and Programmatic TB-HIV Course aims to improve diagnosis, treatment and care of tuberculosis among people living with HIV. Mortality in co-infected patients is often very high and not all programmes are adapted to give an effective response on this reality. We believe that to reduce mortality in co-infected patients, it is necessary to offer an integrated clinical management to harmonise the management of both diseases and their complications under framework of the 12 points components of the country-level implementation of collaborative TB-HIV activities.

Testimonials

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.
