Integrating Community-Based Tuberculosis Activities into the Work of NGOs and other CSOs

The World Health Organization (WHO) released its operational guidance entitled Engage-TB - Integrating Community-Based Tuberculosis Activities into the Work of NGOs and other CSOs in 2012. In 2013, it produced an accompanying implementation manual for Engage-TB Operational Guidance. This training curriculum and facilitators' guide was developed based on the implementation manual and intended to help train staff of national tuberculosis programs (NTPs) or their equivalents, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and other civil society organizations (CSOs) and all other stakeholders in the Engage-TB approach. Such training should increase the ability of these actors to support and integrate community-based tuberculosis (TB) activities into their ongoing work.

This document is purposely designed to combine the training curriculum and the facilitators' guide. Part A is the training curriculum, while Part B is the facilitators' guide. The facilitators' guide includes the PowerPoint slides available at http://www.who.int/tb/people_and_communities/engage_tb_tm/en/ and reproduced in print in Annex 7 of this document.

The training curriculum and the facilitators' guide should always be used together with WHO's Engage-TB Operational Guidance and Implementation Manual.

The curriculum has five modules, which are divided into units that are logically and sequentially structured to enable participants to acquire unit learning outcomes and competences. The teaching duration, methods, activities and tools presented are only a guide and should be adapted to the facilitators' settings to ensure effective delivery of WHO Engage-TB training. The training curriculum is structured in a modular format to facilitate flexible delivery for different target groups. For example, a trainee knowledgeable about TB such as a national TB program (NTP) staff may not need to use module 2 (TB - the basics). Module 5 unit 5.6 will be applicable mainly to participants intending to integrate TB activities into agricultural programs. Those working in reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) may not find this unit relevant. The curriculum is a "live" document and should be reviewed, adapted and updated as needed.
