Dr. Olga Gorbacheva, Global Coordinator of IOM's Health Assessment Programme, based in IOM Headquarters in Geneva, speaks about the importance of providing high-quality services for the management of tuberculosis.


The management of tuberculosis (TB) by IOM aims to adequately treat and cure the infected patient, as well as minimize the risk of transmission to other persons before, during, and after migration. Quality TB management requires the consistent and diligent application of a standardized, evidence-based approach along with recognized guidelines. This manual aims to support a consistent and high-quality process of TB management for IOM health assessment activities worldwide.
