Purpose of establishing the training centre is improving the quality of TB diagnostics, treatment and prevention, as well as introduction of international standards of TB treatment in Ukraine. Training in the Centre is conducted for medical workers (physicians, nurses, personnel of the general medical network) as well as for non-medical workers (representatives of the mass media, public organizations, caseworkers, volunteers etc.). Leading Ukrainian and foreign experts are invited as trainers in our Centre.
Modern equipment available at the Training Centre helps make the process of training efficient and convenient to the greatest possible extent. Thus, document camera enables to examine and analyse even bad quality X-ray images, and video conferencing equipment enables to conduct online consultations and seminars. Pre- and post-training computer testing system is introduced, as well as the system for monitoring and evaluation of introducing the gained skills at workplace. Travelling seminars and trainings are often conducted.

This status will enable the centre to confirm its following not only national but also world standards of TB fighting training, and will give an opportunity to widely share the experience with foreign colleagues.
