After decades of stagnation, finally new diagnostics, drugs and regimens have become available through intensified research efforts and increased field experiences. This has engendered a growing need for expert guidance to the point that the production of guidelines and policy recommendations risks resulting in limited understanding if not seen in a comprehensive and coherent fashion. This document, therefore, has been conceived to provide a general overview of all recommendations made by WHO in the past few years. It incorporates all recent policy guidance from WHO’s Global TB Programme; follows the care pathway of persons with signs or symptoms of TB in seeking diagnosis, treatment and care; and it includes those cross-cutting elements that are essential to a patient-centred approach to care delivery.
