TB manual : national tuberculosis programme guidelines
AbstractThis manual for tuberculosis, although written for Poland, aims at being a generic manual. It provides guidelines for tuberculosis control, which can be adapted and made more specific if need be. The manual is written against the background of tuberculosis control in the former socialist countries with a vertically organized and specialized system. The manual for tuberculosis gives information about the disease and the strategy and organization of a national control programme. It deals with case definitions and treatment categories. Although the manual is based on the WHO strategy for tuberculosis control, following the five key elements as defined and illustrated by the descriptions of diagnosis, treatment and recording and reporting system, it gives more information than just that. There is a chapter on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of tuberculosis in children, often a neglected aspect of tuberculosis control. It also deals with difficult clinical management problems, such as the adverse effects of treatment, the management of drug-resistant tuberculosis and the combination of TB/HIV. Finally, the management of tuberculosis in groups at risk and health education are discussed. It is expected that this manual will be of help to all NTPs which are changing their control strategies

Regional Office for Europe (EUR/00/5017613, 2000)Tuberculosis (TB) control in parts of Europe requires urgent action. Drug-resistant TB is increasing rapidly. In parts of central and eastern Europe, economic decline, poverty, overcrowded prisons and fractured medical services mean that TB rates are increasing and multidrug-resistant strains are rapidly emerging. There is also a growing epidemic of HIV infection, which is likely to compound TB control problems. This fourth biennial meeting of national tuberculosis programme managers was convened to facilitate the exchange of information on TB ...

Nevertheless, expansion of the DOTS (directly observed treatment, short-course) strategy has shown some improvement in Europe. ...
