TB/MDR-TB Standards

Best Practice for the Care of Patients with Tuberculosis; A guide for Low Income Countries (UNION)

The International Standards for Tuberculosis Care (TBCTA)

Developed by the Tuberculosis Coalition for Technical Assistance (TBCTA) with funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the ISTC describe a widely accepted level of care that all practitioners, public and private, 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.

Nurses bringing light to where there is no light!

The  ICN TB/MDR-TB Leading Lights initiative aims to showcase the work of exceptional nurses trained by the ICN TB/MDR-TB project who are making an outstanding contribution to TB prevention, care and management in their local facility and/or community.

The Leading Lights Award will highlight the contribution of those involved with caring for those affected by any form of TB and show the world what an impact effective training and resources can have on this global disease.

ICN invites all the ICN TB project partners to nominate nurses and allied health workers who have demonstrated excellence in their efforts to teach their colleagues about TB, improve patient care or make changes to reduce transmission of TB.  The winners will be highlighted on the ICN’s TB Project webpages. As well as being highlighted on the ICN's website, the winners will be presented with a certificate and a special pin by their national nurses association.

Once a year, we will also be celebrating one of our in-country project leads without whom the ICN TB/MDR-TB Project would not function and these nurses would not receive the training and mentorship available.

After attending the TB training last year Mr Mbiko systematically trained all the nurses in his hospital, encouraged them to screen people for TB and ensured that people got registered and started on treatment. “This capacitation saved people’s lives because I went back with knowledge and courage to help these people who were just left to die.”
