noted. The new course has been designed for medical doctors with specialties in pulmonology, infectious diseases and tuberculosis and professionals in expert or public health positions in relation to TB programmes at the national or regional level.

The course will take place in Tartu and Tallin, Estonia, from 19 to 22 April 2010 and will be conducted in English.

The main emphasis of the four-day course is on diagnosis and treatment of MDR-TB, XDR-TB and TB/HIV co-infection. The topics will also include
epidemiology, surveillance, diagnostic methods, laboratory issues, infection control,screening and treatment of latent TB infection. New innovations in TB
management and control will be discussed.
