Conference & Workshop on TB Control in the Tibetan Population in India
TB is a major health problem for Tibetan in-exile in India and around the world. Major advances have been made in the last few years to scale up TB control effort in this community. However, ongoing transmission and drug resistant TB continue to pose a major threat.
This Conference is a unique opportunity to bring together Tibetan, Indian, and international partners to find solutions and share their experiences. It will also provide training to staff involved in the TB control activities.
