8. Plans for updating the guideline

This guideline will be reviewed in 2020. If new information is available at that time, a guideline review group will be convened to evaluate the new evidence and revise the recommendation if needed. The Department of Nutrition for Health and Development and the Global TB Programme at the WHO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, along with their internal partners, will be responsible for coordinating the guideline update, following formal WHO handbook for guideline development (1) procedures. WHO welcomes suggestions regarding additional questions for evaluation in the guideline when it is due for review.
