Desk guide for diagnosis and management of TB in children

The Union has published the third edition of Desk Guide for Diagnosis and Management of TB in Children.

The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) in partnership with experts from TB endemic countries has produced for the National TB control programs a desk guide of child TB management for health workers aimed at the district or more peripheral level of care.

The edition includes dosage tables for the newly available fixed-dose combinations of first-line treatments for young children, the inclusion of the Xpert assay in the diagnostic approach, and a section on multidrug-resistant TB in children.
