  • Dr Ian Harper

Project summary

Professor Harper is exploring issues around the implementation of the WHO STOP TB Strategy. Countries have been broadening the arenas of TB control activities to include: TB/HIV, drug-resistant forms and issues of marginalised populations; health system strengthening; empowering people and communities; and developing operational research. He is addressing ethical and public health issues revealed in the production and implementation of guidelines for drug resistant TB, and how these issues are resolved within particular countries.
