CONTENT

This course will introduce broad tuberculosis research topics –the World Health Organization’s Research plan as part of the End TB strategy, priorities in drug resistant and HIV-related tuberculosis, as well as the missing pieces of the TB Research puzzle. Every morning session will focus on a different methodology – operational research, molecular epidemiology, systematic reviews, randomized trials and economic analysis. In the afternoons, there will be “late-breakers”, short presentations of exciting new findings from course faculty, followed by basics in biostatistical methods, then small group sessions to work in operational research, epidemiology, systematic reviews, qualitative/ community based research, randomized trials or cost analysis. The output from each group will be presented to the entire group on the final afternoon.
