Impact of personnel shortages on TB programs

By David Bryden | 31 Aug, 2018

Dear colleagues - I am looking for any research or analysis of the impact of shortages of trained personnel, eg nurses, community health workers, lab workers, physicians etc, on the ability of TB programs to respond to the epidemic, support active case finding, support patients etc. (Also, regarding community health workers specifically, is there any recent research showing their contribution to active case finding or treatment completion?) My goal is to write a short piece about this to catch the interest of policy makers. Thanks for any tips or suggestions. David Bryden, RESULTS
