Guideline: Nutritional care and support for patients with tuberculosis

Maria del Carmen Casanovas, Knut Lönnroth, Luz Maria De-Regil et al, Eds.: World Health Organization, (2013)


Undernutrition increases the risk of tuberculosis (TB) and in turn TB can lead to malnutrition. Undernutrition is therefore highly prevalent among people with TB. It has been demonstrated that undernutrition is a risk factor for progression from TB infection to active TB disease and that undernutrition at the time of diagnosis of active TB is a predictor of increased risk of death and TB relapse. However, the evidence concerning the effect of nutritional supplementation on TB prevention and health outcomes among people with TB had not previously been systematically reviewed. This guideline provides guidance on the principles and recommendations for nutritional care and support of patients with TB as part of their regular TB care

Technology and Market Landscape Hepatitis C Medicines, August 2017

A.Hill, T. Swan and K.Timmermans , Eds.: World Health Organisation (WHO); UNITAID, (2017)


Direct acting antivirals (DAAs) have revolutionized treatment for hepatitis C. Combi- nations of DAAs can cure infection with HCV in 12 weeks, are highly effective and have limited side-effects. Affordability of DAAs has improved significantly, but access remains lim- ited. Initially, due to their high prices, affordability of DAAs was limited in high-, middle- and low- income countries alike. Now there is a divide between those countries where, because of intellectual property barriers, prices have remained (very) high and other countries where generics are, or can be, available at much lower prices. The result is a dual market
