Annually, International Training Center (ITC) organizes 7 to 12 international training activities and over the years has collaborated with different partners. In addition, ITC has been involved in multiple national and international level projects addressing the key challenges for TB control.
The location of the ITC is the Tuberculosis and Lung Disease Centre of Riga East University. This is where most of the training courses are held, and therefore practical visits to see the work of the MDR-TB ward, TB laboratory, out-patient department as well as to understand the infection control measures, nursing processes, patient management and collaboration among services in Latvia are an important part of the training programs, to ensure people-centered TB care. Training curriculum is regularly adapted following the rapidly changing worldwide innovations, scientific evidence, WHO guidance, and recommendations in the management of DR-TB.
The ONLINE training schedule for 2021 will be announced soon!
