TB Education and Training

Education and training about TB are essential for sustainable control programs. Training should be directed not only to healthcare providers but also to decision makers, especially those who influence health education curricula, and to the public. All these groups should be kept aware of TB, the goal of elimination, and the means to achieve the goal.
