Achieving patient-centred care for people affected by tuberculosis

The International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease has published a supplement entitled “Achieving patient-centred care for people affected by tuberculosis” along with its October issue. The supplement is open access and has been co-sponsored by Jhpiego and the International Council of Nurses (ICN) TB Project.

The supplement presents different perspectives of patient-centred care, a concept which is broadly supported but difficult to implement as it requires a fundamental shift in our approach to all aspects of health care delivery. The focus is on tuberculosis but the articles are relevant to all areas where improving access to good quality care is fundamental to the success of health programmes.
