This webinar aim is to elucidate the seven standards:

Standard 1: All patients (adult or child) who have symptoms and signs compatible with PTB should undergo investigations to reach a diagnosis.

Standard 2: Adequate bacteriological tests should be conducted to exclude drug-resistant TB.

Standard 3: An appropriate regimen recommended by WHO and national guidelines for the treatment of PTB should be identified.

Standard 4: Health education and counselling should be provided for each patient starting treatment.

Standard 5: Treatment monitoring should be conducted to assess adherence, follow patient progress, identify and manage adverse events, and detect development of resistance

Standard 6: A recommended series of patient examinations should be performed at the end of treatment.

Standard 7: Necessary public health actions should be conducted for each patient.
