Sharing Scientific Knowledge The Union developed its first technical guide in the late 1970s to facilitate the knowledge and technology transfer between consultants with extensive field experience and low-income countries in the throes of establishing national tuberculosis control programmes and policies. Management of Tuberculosis first appeared in 1978 and the sixth edition will be available in early 2010. More than 50,000 copies have been disseminated around the world. The widespread use of this first guide encouraged The Union to develop additional guides. Today, it publishes technical guides, books, CDs, posters, factsheets and other educational resources.
