Highlight of the Month

This month's highlight is the I-TECH TB Prevention Toolkit, from the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH). The TB Prevention Toolkit was created to assist administrators and health care workers in communities with a high prevalence of both TB and HIV to implement TB prevention and control measures. The toolkit provides guidance on strengthening TB infection control practices, intensifying case finding, and incorporating isoniazid preventive therapy into the care and treatment of persons living with HIV.
