The USAID TB Prevention Project in Georgia collaborated with the Ministry of Health to develop and disseminate an online training package for medical and other health practitioners. The online training modules are designed to improve diagnosis, management, and referral of tuberculosis patients in accordance with national TB guidelines. The modules are intended to reinforce initiatives geared at encouraging stronger identification and management of TB by private doctors and nurses in Georgia. Through this web-based training package, private medical practitioners are trained in directly observed treatment, short-course (DOTS) and the International Standards for Tuberculosis Care that are part of the STOP TB strategy.
