The particular focus was on moving towards the elimination of TB, improving childhood TB measures, improving TB prevention and control in other vulnerable groups and reviewing national policies and guidelines for TB prevention and control. The review has produced specific recommendations which will enable relevant country stakeholders to improve current TB prevention and control strategies and interventions.
