Post-graduate course New WHO operational guidance on the management of TB in children and adolescents: a game changer to save young lives
Date: Tuesday 25 October 2022
Time: 12:00 to 15:00 CEST

The World Health Organization released consolidated guidelines on the management of tuberculosis (TB) in children and adolescents in March 2022, along with an operational handbook which contains practical guidance on how to implement the WHO recommendations. The new guidance covers the full cascade of care for children and adolescents at risk of TB and with TB.

The objectives of this course are to provide an in-depth orientation on the practical implementation guidance on the management of TB in children and adolescents included in the operational handbook, spanning the entire cascade of care, as well as to share experiences and perspectives from implementing partners.

After attending this workshop participants will be able to:
- gain an in-depth understanding of the topics covered in the WHO operational handbook on the management of TB in children and adolescents;
- have the opportunity to learn about successful approaches on the implementation of interventions to improve the diagnosis and management of TB in children and adolescents;
- have the opportunity to discuss and understand implementation considerations related to the clinical and programmatic management of TB in children and adolescents.
