Drug-resistant Tuberculosis. The Global Fund. (2017)

immage

Drug-resistant TB is part of the growing challenge of antimicrobial resistant superbugs that do not respond to existing medications, resulting in fewer treatment options and increasing mortality rates for illnesses that would ordinarily be curable — including TB. Global development partners must move faster to contain this threat of antimicrobial resistance before it escalates to claim millions of lives around the world.

Infographic Tuberculosis and HIV. UNAIDS. (2017)

immage

UNAIDS calls for the elimination of TB deaths among people living with HIV and for health systems to be strengthened and services integrated to allow for a more rapid scale-up of HIV and TB programming. Countries must expand HIV prevention and treatment programmes that include regular TB screening, preventive therapy and early treatment, since they are simple, affordable and effective programmes that prevent TB deaths.

Miners: Stop TB Key Populations Brief. Stop TB Partnership. (2016)

immage

A confluence of biologic and social conditions creates the ‘perfect storm’ for the interaction of silicosis, HIV and TB in the mining industry. This phenomenon is best documented in the mining industry of South Africa, but evidence is emerging that similar patterns are developing elsewhere. However, research outside of sub-Saharan Africa is sparse, thus limiting the understanding of the need for interventions.

HIV-TB training module is developed in coordination with NACO and the Central TB Division to build the capacity of the staff of the programme’s Sub Recipient partner organizations who in turn will train the staff of CSCs to address this key health priority. This training module covers the skills and strategies required in Vihaan staff at every level to ensure that HIV-TB co-infection is promptly and properly addressed. While emphasis is made on responding to the needs of clients at service level, the module will also describe coordination mechanisms developed at national, state and district level.

Tuberculosis Control in Migrant Populations: Guiding Principles and Proposed Actions. WHO. (2016)

immage

MDR-TB is essentially a human-made problem that develops because of low-quality drugs and/or inadequate treatment regimens, and it is difficult and expensive to treat. The development of migrant-sensitive TB control policies is especially critical given the high mobility of migrants—which increases the likelihood of transmission and treatment default, their lack of access to health-care services, their often dire living conditions and their propensity to inadequately self-treat in the private sector. In formulating such policies, however, policy-makers should note that TB is primarily transmitted within migrant communities, with very limited evidence of transmission from migrant groups into host country populations.
