Integrating community-based tuberculosis activities into the work of nongovernmental and other civil society organizations: Operational Guidance

Community-based TB activities cover a wide range of activities contributing to prevention, diagnosis,
improved treatment adherence and care that positively influence the outcomes of drug-sensitive, drugresistant and HIV-associated TB. Such community-based TB activities could and should be integrated with other community-based activities supporting primary health care services, including those for HIV infection, maternal and child health and noncommunicable diseases to improve synergy and impact. This document provides guidance on strategies and methods for this kind of integration.
