This is a fillable form that can be used to assess and improve TB preventive therapy (TPT) initiation and completion among eligible people living with HIV who have screened negative for TB.
This manual is complementary to the overall infection prevention and control policy of the Ministry of Health and Sports of Myanmar and is meant to assist in the establishment of a framework for TB-IC in healthcare facilities, as well as in those congregate and community settings where the potential for transmission of TB is likely to be high. The manual provides both managerial and operational guidance.
La stratégie FAST peut être utilisée pour réduire la propagation de la tuberculose ou de la tuberculose mul- tirésistante dans les environnements suivants : les hôpitaux, les cliniques, les prisons et d’autres types d’établissement tels que les centres d’accueil pour sans abri ou les camps de réfugiés.
FAST is a focused tuberculosis transmission control strategy that prioritizes the administrative components of traditional TB infection control: rapid diagnosis and effective treatment. FAST stands for “Finding TB cases Actively, Separating safely, Treating effectively.” This zipped package contains a booklet as well as posters, badges and job aids.
This job aid lists effective procedures which can reduce the risk of the transmission of TB, in the workplace. You can select procedures which are applicable in your work setting and incorporate them in your routine work practices.
Модуль «Инфекционный контроль» предназначен для (медицинских) работников, которые работают в противотуберкулезных учреждениях и/или с ТБ больными. Цель этого модуля: повысить уровень их знаний по общим вопросом инфекционного контроля ТБ.
This handbook is designed to facilitate understanding and use of the Simplified Checklist for TB Infection Control, with a particular emphasis on settings where TB, HIV and TB with HIV are prevalent.
Ce manuel a été conçu pour faciliter la compréhension et l’utilisation de la Liste de contrôle simplifiée pour la lutte contre la tuberculose, particulièrement dans les milieux à forte prévalence de tuberculose, du VIH et de tuberculose associée au VIH.
Criamos este manual para facilitar o entendimento e o uso da Lista de Verificação Simplificada para Controle de Infecção por TB, com ênfase especial em ambientes onde TB, HIV e TB com HIV prevalecem.
This three-part Simplified Checklist for TB Infection Control (TB-IC) is designed to provide community health workers, supervisors, and program managers (from national TB programs, NGOs, and community based organizations, etc.) with very practical ways to properly implement TB IC, thereby minimizing the risk of transmission within community residential settings, including families and households..
La présente Liste de contrôle a été conçue pour offrir aux ASC, aux superviseurs et aux responsables de programme au sein des Programmes nationaux de lutte contre la tuberculose (PNLT), des organisations non gouvernementales (ONG) ou communautaires et autres des moyens pratiques pour mettre convenablement en œuvre la LAT et réduire au minimum les risques de transmission au sein des communautés, y compris dans les familles et les ménages.
A Lista de Verificação objetiva fornecer aos Programas Nacionais de Controle da Tuberculose (PNCT), bem como aos programas não governamentais e aqueles ao nível da comunidade, entre outros, maneiras bem práticas de implementar corretamente um TB IC e de minimizar o risco de transmissão dentro dos ambientes residenciais das comunidades, incluindo famílias e domicílios.
The CDC has recognized that in some countries guidelines for infection control related to Tuberculosis, have not yet been translated to facility level action. This video is part of an implementation package developed to address that need. It is based on the WHO Policy on TB Infection Control in Health-Care Facilities, Congregate Settings and Households (2009) and emphasizes basic, simple activities that can be performed at the facility level to begin implementation of TB infection control.
A two-page document which covers Laboratory Biosafety Guidance.
A framework to plan, implement and scale-up TB infection control activities at country, facility and community levels
A zipped package of editable and adjustable tools, forms and documents, to accompany ‘Implementing the WHO Policy on TB Infection Control’ above.
A zipped package of templates useful in conducting TB Infection Control Operations Research.
This manual encourages countries to accept and implement basic concepts in biological safety and to develop national codes of practice for the safe handling of pathogenic micro-organisms in laboratories within their geographical borders.
Le présent manuel indique quelles sont les mesures de sécurité biologique minimum qui doivent être prises aux différents niveaux des laboratoires chargés d’effectuer le diagnostic de la tuberculose afin de réduire de risque de contracter l’infection sur le lieu de travail.
This document on Airborne Infection Prevention and Control in Health Facility Settings has been developed by the Federal Ministry of Health of Ethiopia. It aims to provide guidance on building design and environmental engineering requirements for the benefit of all involved in the procurement, design, construction, commissioning and use of the healthcare infrastructure across both public and private sectors.
These guidelines describe measure that reduce the risk of transmitting tuberculosis to managers, healthcare workers, patients, volunteers, visitors and other persons in the health care facilities, communities, prisons and households. The document focuses on the safety of healthcare workers and reduction of patient-to-patient transmission.
This guide for monitoring the incidence of TB disease among healthcare workers addresses issues such as stigma and work discrimination, and also provides practical recommendations on how to establish an effective monitoring system. This document is the result of years of operational research as well as debates and discussions organized by the WHO and TB CARE partners.
It has been proven that in many settings the burden of TB is higher among healthcare workers (HCWs) than among the general population. It is very important to prevent the transmission of TB in facilities, thereby preventing TB among HCWs.
