Ethics Guidance for the Implementation of the TB Strategy. WHO. (2017)

immage

The World Health Organization End TB Strategy is fully aligned with the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Both require due attention to equity, human rights and ethics. In fact, “protecting human rights, ethics and equity” is one of the four key principles of the WHO End TB Strategy. The SDG agenda itself is inspired by a simple motto: “Leave no one behind”. Ensuring that these essential principles guide the implementation of the End TB Strategy is a must, especially when tuberculosis (TB) is rampant among the most vulnerable and marginalized populations everywhere in 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.

The Use of Delamanid in the Treatment of Multidrug-resistant Tuberculosis in Children and Adolescents. WHO. (2016)

immage

The use of delamanid in the treatment of MDR-TB was recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2014. However, due to the lack of evidence on the use of delamanid in the paediatric populations, these interim policy recommendations were limited to adult MDR-TB patients under very strict conditions. In view of recent data on the use of delamanid in children diagnosed with MDR-TB, WHO convened an independent, multidisciplinary, international expert panel to assess new data and develop an addendum to the 2014 interim guidance on delamanid, with specific recommendations to paediatric MDR-TB patients.

Toolkit for Developing a National TB Research Plan. WHO. (2015)

immage

Tuberculosis (TB) remains an important global health problem. Although a number of important advances have been made to control TB in the past decade, an estimated 10.4 million people fell ill with TB and 1.8 million died from the disease in 2015. WHO’s Global TB Programme has identified research and innovation as one of the three essential pillars to end TB as a public health threat by 2030. This document provides the structure and tools that enable the necessary actions to be taken to address country-specific TB challenges and ensure that national response activities are supported by evidence to the fullest extent possible.

 

This document describes how to develop a country-specific approach to utilizing research and innovation to strengthen and improve TB care and control. It provides a series of tools for developing and implementing a national TB research plan that will help in leveraging individual country action to address the global TB burden. These tools will assist a country’s national TB control programme or its equivalent to develop an effective national TB research plan through a coherent step-by-step process.

WHO Treatment Guidelines for Drug-resistant Tuberculosis, 2016 Update. WHO. (2016)

immage

The scope of the WHO treatment guidelines for drug-resistant tuberculosis, 2016 update thus differed from the one that guided the previous update of the WHO policy recommendations on the programmatic management of drug-resistant TB in 2011. It did not cover aspects of policy guidance on the programmatic management of drug-resistant TB that were of lesser priority or for which no new evidence has emerged since the 2011 revision. These included questions relating to the use of rapid diagnostics for RR-TB, the monitoring of response to treatment, the duration of longer (“conventional”) MDR-TB regimens, the delay in starting antiretroviral therapy in MDR-TB patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and models of care.

Gender Assessment Tool for National HIV and TB Response. Stop TB Partnership and UNAIDS. (2016)

immage

Gender dynamics in TB enrolment, treatment and cure rates are not uniform. In some countries, men have better outcomes than women, while in other countries it is women who do. In most low and middle-income countries about two-thirds of reported TB cases are men and only one third women, and it is not well known whether this is due to a higher risk of developing TB among men or under-notification of TB among women with the evidence that women are less likely to be diagnosed with tuberculosis and successfully treated.

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

immage

Childhood TB has been called a “sentinel event” because it indicates failure on two fronts. First, it signals an ongoing transmission, since the child likely contracted TB from someone close to him or her and who has likely remained untreated. Second, it indicates a wider failure in the system, since it points to the lack of preventative therapy that could have easily stopped the child from developing TB in the first place.

Annual Report 2015. Stop TB Partnership. (2016)

immage

The development of the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020 was a more than 18-month effort, led by the Task Force of the Stop TB Partnership’s Coordinating Board. The development process was informed by the outcomes of four regional consultations as well as a two-month online consultation process. The regional consultation meetings in Addis Ababa (May), Bangkok (June), Istanbul (July) and Buenos Aires (August) brought together around 400 participants from government, TB programmes and other implementers, private providers, corporate sector, civil society and affected communities.
