Regional consultation on childhood TB in the WHO European Region. Copenhagen, Denmark, 12–13 November 2015



The goal of zero tuberculosis (TB) deaths among children, endorsed by the international TB community, can only be achieved if various factors are addressed, including:

  • increasing diagnostic capacities;
  • combatting the tendency towards excessive hospitalization of children with TB; and 
  • addressing the lack of guidance in specific areas of TB policy.

On 12 and 13 November 2015 the WHO Regional Office for Europe convened key actors working in the field of childhood TB in the WHO European Region for a regional consultation. 

This report summarizes outputs from the presentations and group work of the event.
