Improving early detection of tuberculosis through verbal screening

Case study to share knowledge, disseminate lessons learned and improve the quality and continuum of care.

This case study provides an example from the field of how intensified TB case finding through verbal screening can be implemented within HIV prevention programmes for key populations in concentrated epidemics.

It is intended to promote knowledge-sharing; disseminate lessons learnt in TB/HIV integration; and improve the quality and continuum of care.

The case study is targeted at managers and programme officers in organisations implementing HIV prevention services for key populations. It provides practical steps that may be performed within such settings to integrate TB screening into HIV services.
