Nutritional care and support for patients with tuberculosis

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Jan 2013

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. However, it does not consider the provision of food as part of a package of enablers to improve TB treatment adherence or as means to mitigate the negative financial consequences of TB. Member States have requested guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) on nutritional care and support for patients with TB, in support of their efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. The primary audience for the guideline is health workers providing care to people with TB.
