World Health Organization (WHO), (2016)


The purpose of this handbook is to provide guidance to Member States on the practical aspects of maintaining sanitary standards at international borders at ports, airports, and ground crossings (points of entry) as set out in the International Health Regulations (2005). It provides technical advice for developing a comprehensive programme for systematic monitoring of disease vectors and integrated vector control at points of entry. This includes standardizing procedures at points of entry and ensuring a sufficient monitoring and response capacity with the necessary infrastructure for surveillance and control of vectors.

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), (2016)


Une fois adoptée et mise en œuvre, la stratégie contribuera à réduire sensiblement les nouvelles infections sexuellement transmissibles et les décès connexes (ainsi que les mortinatalités et le cancer du col de l’utérus), tout en améliorant la santé individuelle, la santé sexuelle des hommes et des femmes, et le bien-être de tous. Elle va orienter les efforts visant à : accélérer et cibler l’essentiel des actions de prévention en renforçant des approches à la fois comportementales, biomédicales et structurelles ; faciliter l’accès individuel à l’information concernant le statut personnel vis-à-vis des infections sexuellement transmissibles ; améliorer l’accès au traitement et à l’éventail complet des soins de longue durée, le cas échéant ; et combattre la stigmatisation et la discrimination généralisées. Le projet de stratégie encourage une démarche centrée sur la personne et fondée sur les principes des droits fondamentaux, de l’égalité entre les sexes et de l’équité en santé.

United States Agency for International Development (USAID), (2013)


This core package of materials provides a comprehensive introduction to the FAST strategy: a focused approach to stopping TB spread in congregate settings. In English, FAST stands for: Finding TB cases Actively, Separating safely, and Treating effectively. FAST focuses health care workers on the most important TB transmission control intervention: effective treatment. FAST can also be extrapolated to national policy where it serves as a framework for allocating resources to interventions that will have the greatest impact on reducing TB transmission. This core package is composed of a booklet, job aids, posters, and a button which serves as a visual reminder to staff and patients of the importance of this strategy in TB control. FAST can be implemented in both general and TB specific medical settings. For full package visit: https://drtbnetwork.org/fast-tb-infection-control-strategy-core-package
