2.2 Care and support during TB treatment

All treatment delivered should align with WHO-recommended standards, including patient-centred care and support, informed consent where necessary, principles of good clinical practice, and regular patient monitoring to assess regimen effectiveness and patient safety (1). Clinical monitoring of people on treatment is important, and this handbook includes information on both treatment monitoring and the usefulness of post-treatment follow-up for special cases (e.g. long-term complications of TB or TB sequelae).
