Teaching Tuberculosis in Schools of Health: Report of an Expert Consultation (Cartagena, Colombia, 6–8 October 2004)
Tuberculosis is a serious public-health problem, against which the DOTS strategy constitutes the most effective global tool for TB control. Recent studies clearly revealed that one of the major limitations in DOTS expansion concerns the lack of human resources (HR), both in numbers and in terms of adequate skills and abilities. This is PAHO's second meeting in Columbia with teaching representatives from the countries, following up on the initial situation analysis and recommendations on how to improve teaching on tuberculosis in universities; it focuses on how to promote effective involvement of health schools in tuberculosis control.
