The aim of the course is to provide an educational update on the topic of tuberculosis and to a lesser extent other mycobacterial infections in South-East Asia. Tuberculosis remains the infectious disease with the single greatest mortality worldwide and the majority of cases are in Asia.

The specific education aims are:

  • To provide an update on the latest thinking in the management, diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis.
  • To introduce aspects of the immune response to tuberculosis as relevant to the potential development of new diagnostics and host directed therapies.
  • To outline recent developments in the management of non- tuberculous mycobacteria commonly found in South-East Asia.
