The Union developed its first technical guide in the late 1970s to facilitate the knowledge and technology transfer between consultants with extensive field experience and low-income countries in the throes of establishing national tuberculosis control programmes and policies.

Management of Tuberculosis, also known as "The Orange Guide" first appeared in 1986 and the seventh edition was published in 2019. More than 50,000 copies have been disseminated around the world, and many other guides and resources have since been published. Most of these materials may be downloaded at no charge.
