COMMUNICATIONS, EDUCATION, AND BEHAVIORAL STUDIES BRANCH UPDATES

DTBE Staff Assist WHO in Training-of-Trainers Workshop

DTBE Celebrates World KC Day!Wanda Walton, PhD, and Cheryl Tryon, MS, of DTBE’s Communications, Education, and Behavioral Studies Branch (CEBSB), assisted the World Health Organization (WHO) Global TB Programme in organizing and implementing a training-of-trainers workshop for the Programmatic Management of Drug-Resistant TB (PMDT). The workshop was held in conjunction with the WHO South East Asia Region Office (SEARO) in New Delhi, India, from March 18 to 27, 2014. Walton and Tryon also conducted this same training with WHO in the Philippines in May 2013. The overall goal of the workshop was to create a cadre of master trainers in the region who will be able to deliver high-quality training in their own countries for health-care workers responsible for implementing services to diagnose and treat multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB.

The training was based on MDR TB technical modules developed by WHO, using the CDC Teachback Methodology Curriculum to develop training skills for the participants. The 21 participants included representatives of national TB programs, WHO country offices, and nongovernment organizations from Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Timor-Leste who are active in providing TB-related training. Each participant developed a country-specific human resource development plan for PMDT requirements in their own country, and each is expected to follow up with implementation of the plan after the workshop.
