Engage other stakeholders

  • Address short supply of public health engineers
  • Labs, labs, labs, labs – strengthen diagnostics, lab turn-around times, communication between labs & programs, use new tools
  • Engage the community

response guidance
ResponseGuidance
  • We are developing “A National Framework to Implement TB-IC Interventions in Health care settings in Resource-Limited Countries”
    • What needs to be implemented at country level and how to prioritize it
    • 10-15 page document
    • In accordance with principles of WHO Guidelines Review Committee (assessing and describing the evidence base).
  • Process includes:
    • Developing key questions for consideration and systematic review
    • Conducting systematic literature review and grading to provide evidence base
    • Crafting TB IC recommendations based on evidence collected and rated with a standardized grading system.
    • Considering feasibility and cost in final recommendations.
  • Final document – anticipated in last quarter 2008
examples of questions for review
Examples of questions for review
  • What is the impact of natural ventilation vs mechanical ventilation vs UV lights on reduction of TB transmission?
  • What is the role of respirators and masks in reducing TB transmission? Is fit testing of respirators critical or would training and fit check suffice?
response urgent guidance
ResponseUrgent guidance
  • Development of brief document “Ten Essential TB Infection Control Steps”

Response
  • Demonstration projects to develop guidance/package of activities, tools, job aids for IC at facility level (PEPFAR, ICAP)
  • Project to develop standard M & E indicators for infection control at various levels (MDR TB Subgroup on Research and TB IC Subgroup, TB CAP)
  • Collaboration with WHO Epidemic and Pandemic Alert and Response Team to introduce TB IC in “Natural Ventilation for Infection Control in Health Care Settings” (Guidelines addressed to engineers and HCWs)
