Projects & Resources
The global resurgence of tuberculosis (TB) over the past decades has been fueled by emerging drug resistance, co-infection with increasingly prevalent HIV and decreasing investments in public health systems.
FHI 360 is a member of the Tuberculosis Trials Consortium (TBTC), which conducts clinical, laboratory and epidemiologic research for the diagnosis, clinical management and prevention of TB infection and disease.
September 2012 — These tools were developed under TB CAP and TB CARE 1 core-funded projects.
Isoniazid Preventive Therapy (IPT) for the Prevention of Tuberculosis in People Living with HIV (e-course)
HIV infection is the strongest risk factor for a person to develop tuberculosis (TB), and TB is responsible for over a quarter of all AIDS-related deaths worldwide.
Isoniazid Preventive Therapy (IPT) for the Prevention of Tuberculosis in People Living with HIV/AIDS (fact sheet)
September 2011 — Providing isoniazid to prevent tuberculosis among people living with HIV is a proven, internationally recommended strategy that has been effectively implemented in low-resource settings.

With the growing acceptance of community engagement and participatory strategies in clinical research, evaluation of the benefits and burdens are needed. Working with global tuberculosis (TB) stakeholders, the authors developed a theory of change evaluation framework for the Good Participatory Practice Guidelines for TB Drug Trials. The framework is a first step in systematically evaluating participatory research in clinical trials.
