Tuberculosis resources

EurasiaHealth Knowledge Network is a project of the American International Health Alliance, and their website is a searchable collection of resources relating to TB. This includes links to websites, and details of publications of various sorts.

The contents of the site are particularly aimed particularly at people working in Eastern Europe.

In the 50 days leading up to World TB Day (24th March, this year), there is an online campaign designed to raise awareness of drug resistant TB. One in ten cases of TB are apparently drug resistant. I learnt about this campaign through an email sent to the HIF-NET discussion list: there is more here - look for the link that says One-in-Ten.
