Guidelines for the Development of local protocols
We are glad to present you the “Guidelines for the Development of local protocols for TB case management at the PHC Level”, developed by the P.L. Shypyk National Medical Post-Graduate Academy of Ukraine with the STbCU project’s support.
The Ministry of Health (MoH) approved the guidelines on November 14, 2013. These guidelines now mandate implementation of DOTS-based services regarding TB detection, directly observed TB treatment, and TB infection control measures in the PHC system.
The guidelines, called “Methodology on the Development of Local Protocols at the Primary Health Care (PHC) Level” include the ready-to-use drafts of local protocols on tuberculosis.
