POLICY - New WHO HIV/TB Guidelines (December 1st 2010)

On 1st December 2010 WHO launched its new Guidelines for intensified tuberculosis case-finding and isoniazid preventive therapy for people living with HIV in resource-constrained settings. They include evidence-based recommendations for adults, children and infants living with HIV, address implementation issues and identify key research gaps in order to scale-up TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment as a core component of HIV prevention, treatment and care.

The objective of the 2010 Isoniazid Preventive Therapy/Intensified TB Case Finding (IPT/ICF) guidelines is to provide recommendations for national AIDS and tuberculosis programmes and those providing HIV services to accelerate access for people living with HIV to IPT and ICF. The guidelines are aimed at health-care workers providing care for people living with HIV, policy-makers and health programme managers working in the field of HIV /AIDS and TB. These guidelines are also intended for governments, nongovernmental organizations, donors and patient support groups that address HIV and TB.
