Annually, WHO Collaborating Centre for Research and Training in management of Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis of Latvia (WHO CC Latvia), organizes 7 to 12 international training activities and over the years has collaborated with different partners. Additionally, WHO CC Latvia has been involved in multiple national and international level projects addressing the key challenges for TB control.
The location of WHO CC Latvia 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 programmes, to ensure people-centered TB care.
The ONLINE training schedule for 2021 will be announced soon!
