Workshop for Early Implementers of Xpert MTB/RIF

The workshop "Implementation and roll-out of the Xpert MTB/RIF system for rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis and multidrug-resistance: Workshop for Early Implementers" took place on 7-8 April 2011, in Geneva, Switzerland.

The main objectives of the workshop were to provide country health programmes and technical partners with the science behind Xpert MTB/RIF, linking diagnosis with treatment and care in different epidemiological and resource settings. Sessions were also devoted to practical considerations for the roll-out of Xpert MTB/RIF using the WHO Implementation Document, and to mapping country and technical partner roll-out plans in order to maximize resources.
