This course is designed to empower and strengthen the capacity of nurses and public health staff working in TB care settings for universal coverage of people-centered TB care. The objectives of this course are to scale up approaches and introduce best practices in a people-oriented model of TB care for better diagnosis and treatment outcomes.

WHO CC Latvia regularly involves regional experts from the field in the provision of the course.
