Highlight of the Month
This month's highlight, International Standards for Tuberculosis Care, developed by the Tuberculosis Coalition for Technical Assistance, describes a widely accepted level of care that all practitioners should seek to achieve in managing patients who have, or are suspected of having, tuberculosis. The Standards are intended to facilitate the effective engagement of all care providers in delivering high-quality care for patients of all ages. Developed in tandem with the Standards, the World Care Council's The Patients' Charter for Tuberculosis Care outlines the rights and responsibilities of patients. For more information on The Patients' Charter, see the Additional Resources section below.
