Good Practice Guide: Community-based TB and HIV integration

Gitau Mburu and D’Arcy Richardson

This guide will provide you with practical information and tools you need to get started working on TB.

It provides you with easy-to-understand information on TB/HIV, highlights the kinds of TB/HIV activities community organisations can support, discusses how to engage effectively with your national TB programme and shows how you can fund and monitor your TB activities.

It also includes an accompanying workbook to guide you through a step-by-step process to plan and implement effective activities in your area, whether you work in one district of your province or in the whole country. 

This guide is intended for use by CBOs, other civil society organisations (CSOs), and additional groups that work in HIV or other areas of health and want to incorporate TB activities into their programming. It is useful for organisations that are just starting to work in TB as well as those with more experience. 

The guide is also available in French and Russian.
