Training Package on TB Infection Prevention and Control in Health Facilities
Abstract: In 2011 the “National Guidelines for Tuberculosis Infection Control” were launched, providing guidance to health care workers (HCWs) and hospital managers on the prevention of the transmission of tuberculosis (TB) in their facilities.

In many health facilities TB Infection Prevention and Control (TB-IPC) is not yet up to standard, creating a high-risk of TB infection for HCWs and their patients. Training and supportive supervision of HCWs and their managers is needed to build their capacity to improve their TB-IPC practices.

The TB-Infection Prevention and Control (TB-IPC) package is meant for the people responsible for the “TB Infection Prevention and Control in health facilities”, the facilitators and the participants. The TB-IPC training package includes the training curriculum, the facilitators’ manual and the participants’ manual.
