Tuberculosis National Laboratory

By Abdulwahab Binjomah | 20 Sep, 2017

Dear all,

I was looking for a very well established national tb lab scope of service including epidemiological, diagnostic & research tests. However, I couldn`t find clear image of what Im looking for. Could you please help me to find the following:

- Clear stricture of tuberculosis lab network (supported with the scope of service for peripheral, regional & national labs)
- National TB lab clear scope of service
- List of tests that should be done at the National TB lab

Many thanks

For guidance on TB laboratories please go to the STOP TB Partnership GLI Website: http://www.stoptb.org/wg/gli/

All information and guidance can be found there.

Attached are two resources from this website that can be of assistance. Both outline the framework, recent guidance and global policies on TB
laboratories established by the WHO TB Program's Global Laboratory Initiative Working Group. There are many resources which may be of interest on this website that can be downloaded for free (guidance documents, tools, SOPs, training kits, etc.).

Attached resources:
