Psychosocial counselling and treatment adherence support for people affected by tuberculosis
This pioneering new psychosocial support guide addresses critical gaps in TB care and control by focusing on overcoming the psychological, social and economic factors that prevent people from accessing diagnosis, adhering to care plans and successfully completing treatment.
The guide was developed by TB Alert with support from an international reference group comprising TB survivors, members of multilateral organisations, TB activists, academia, researchers and representatives of civil society organizations working with various TB key populations.
