Workshop on TB Prevention

Programmatic Management of Tuberculosis Preventive Treatment (PMTPT) in the WHO European Region – regional workshop

Date & time: 3−5 Nov 2020, 11:30−14:30 Central European Time

The End TB Strategy, with its vision of a world free of TB and a 2035 goal of TB elimination, was launched by WHO in 2014 and was operationalized by the Tuberculosis Action Plan for the WHO European Region 2016–2020.

WHO/Europe is initiating this regional workshop with the aim of scaling up the uptake and implementation of the latest WHO recommendations on PMTPT across the Region.

As the world comes together to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to ensure that essential services and operations dealing with long-standing health problems continue to protect the lives of people with TB and other diseases or health conditions; that TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment are maintained without any interruption; and that no one is left behind.

FIND’s Head of TB and WHO Collaborating Centre representative, Dr Morten Ruhwald, will be presenting on LTBI on 5 November. More information
