We recently launched the IJTLD Clinical Standards for Lung Health, for optimal management of patients.
Thanks to the support of the Oskar-Helene-Heim Foundation and the Günther Labes Foundation, the first four Clinical Standards are Open Access and freely available to our global audience of clinicians and healthcare workers.
The series launched with Clinical standards for the assessment, management and rehabilitation of post-TB lung disease followed by Clinical standards for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of TB infection, Clinical standards for the dosing and management of TB drugs and Clinical standards for drug-susceptible pulmonary TB.
The latest peer-reviewed articles on TB and HIV; respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD; and the hazards of tobacco and air pollution. Recent coverage has expended to include COVID-19 and the interplay between TB-COVID-19 and other co-morbidities.
