Rapid diagnostics for tuberculosis detection
Abstract: Ensuring universal access to TB care relies on the rapid diagnosis of TB, detection of drug resistance, and on the timely initiation of an effective treatment regimen. These require access to rapid and accurate tests, including drug susceptibility testing for all TB patients.

This course will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to implement WHO-recommended TB tests and algorithms. It includes the latest recommendations for novel tests for TB diagnosis and detection of drug resistance, as well as the most recent WHO policy guidance for the use of those tests. The course also describes the processes and steps for implementing a new diagnostic test for routine use within the TB diagnostic network.
