Dear Anna,
This is a great opportunity for french speaking DRTB professionnals who indeed are facing similar epidemiological challenges vis a vis of drug resistant TB strains compared to their english counterparts in comparable disease epidemiological context. Hopefully, there would be opportunity to deal with case finding strategies as it's perceived as one of the critical and challeging steps in increasing the case detection rates which if not addressed, is continuously fuelling the risk of transmission of DR TB strains in our communities.

Please remember that much can be done to reduce the risk of transmission by very simple Infection control measures. I would be happy to send you our French TB Infection Control training video for clinical settings. You can train anyone anywhere with only a charged laptop that plays videos.
Please send me your address if you'd like me to FedEx you some copies.
Best wishes,

Bonjour à tous,
je salue cette initiative. Ce sera une grande opportunuité pour nous
francophones de mieux contribuer au forum et partager nos petites
experiences de terrain avec les autres collègues francophones pour qui
l'anglais constitue un frein.
I fellow discussions on GHD online but I have problems to reply sometimes
because my English isn't good.
It will be a great opportunity

Very interesting Thank you Ginny. IC is one of the challenges that we are facing.
Last year we put the focus on IC in health care settings. An IC plan have been developed at national level and N95 and surgical mask have been provided all over the country.
This video will be very useful for care providers and also for the communication with patients and community workers

You can send it to the fellowing adress:

The language barrier is a challenge that we well recognize and we are working to translate more of our DR-TB resources into French. I hope that the upcoming webinar is just the first in a series. We currently have clinical cases translated into French on the website but admittedly, they would be difficult to find among all the English pages. We are going to package them separately into a format that is easy to share and very soon we will be able to share the FAST TB IC materials in French, Russian, and Spanish.

I'm attaching an example of the DR-TB case studies that are currently available in English, French, Spanish, and Russian on the DR-TB Training Network website.
