Tuberculosis Control in Migrant Populations: Guiding Principles and Proposed Actions. WHO. (2016)

immage

MDR-TB is essentially a human-made problem that develops because of low-quality drugs and/or inadequate treatment regimens, and it is difficult and expensive to treat. The development of migrant-sensitive TB control policies is especially critical given the high mobility of migrants—which increases the likelihood of transmission and treatment default, their lack of access to health-care services, their often dire living conditions and their propensity to inadequately self-treat in the private sector. In formulating such policies, however, policy-makers should note that TB is primarily transmitted within migrant communities, with very limited evidence of transmission from migrant groups into host country populations.

immage

The International HIV/AIDS Alliance’s theory of change sets out the difference we want to see in the world, and defines the logical sequence of changes we believe are needed to achieve our desired outcomes. It describes the assumptions behind our chosen strategies (as set out in HIV, Health and Rights: Sustaining Community Action1), and the preconditions that need to be in place for these changes to occur. This theory of change is designed to help us better describe what we do, provide a tool for learning and reflection and evaluate our work.
