The objective of these guidelines is to provide updated, evidence-informed recommendations outlining a public health approach to preventing transmission of M. tuberculosis within the clinical and programmatic management of TB, and to support countries in their efforts to strengthen or build reliable, resilient and effective IPC programmes.

We expect these guidelines to form the basis for development of national and subnational policies by Member States. Effective implementation of these guidelines will contribute to achievement of the “End TB Strategy” by contributing towards the reduction in the numbers of TB cases and deaths in the years to come.
