The Adherence Management Framework by The Tuberculosis Health Action Learning Initiative (THALI) sets out a Framework for aiding TB patients to adhere to their drug regimes. Since treatment continuation is a concern for TB cure and recurrence prevention, it is essential to manage and track patients' drug adherence. The Framework consists of various tools, with illustrative examples, to help improve service delivery and care. It includes steps for implementation, adherence counseling and monitoring methods, ways of handling patient escalations, and methods of recording treatment outcomes. This document can prove useful for TB program implementers, medical professionals, and health workers to establish TB medication adherence and to improve the quality of care.
A reference guide for medical professionals on diagnosing and treating TB.
