TB is an airborne disease
What is the risk of TB transmission in your setting? Have strategies been put in place to protect patients, family members, and health care staff from inhaling Mycobacterium tuberculosis?
The documents in this dossier will help you to:
- assess the risk of TB transmission in health care facilities and patients’s homes
- implement strategies to reduce the risk, including administrative, environmental, and personal protective measures
- use measures that are better suited to resource-limited settings, e.g. use of natural ventilation
- promote TB infection control in the community
As well, the dossier contains a short presentation on TB infection control in both PDF and Powerpoint formats, courtesy of Michael Browne.
