Summary of changes to the WHO TB preventive treatment recommendations between 2018 and current updates

Note: In the current update, two of the 2018 recommendations on LTBI testing (Section C) were incorporated into the remarks as implementation considerations; four recommendations on individual TB preventive treatment options have been merged into one recommendation (Recommendation 17). Recommendations 3, 6, 9, 17 and 18 may apply to specific settings in a country regardless of the overall national TB incidence (see text and Annexes for further explanation of the changes). Other recommendations from the 2018 update remain unchanged or else underwent language editing to enhance clarity (Recommendations 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10–16).
