To support the National Tuberculosis Program (NTP) of Indonesia in its efforts to train private health care practitioners in tuberculosis (TB) directly observed treatment, the USAID Health Care Improvement Project was asked by USAID to update and adapt for Indonesia a computer-based training product that had previously been developed for Bolivia by the USAID-funded Quality Assurance Project.
In collaboration with the NTP, the Indonesian Medical Association (Ikatan Dokter Indonesia, or IDI), the Indonesian Midwife Association (IBI), and the Indonesian National Nurses Association (PPNI), HCI and its local partner One Comm developed a computer-based training package in Bahasa Indonesia for medical and other health practitioners. Launched in July 2011, the training program has nine modules that are based on the International Standards for Tuberculosis Care (ISTC):
- Introduction, history, and epidemiology of TB
- Pathogenesis of TB infection and tuberculosis disease
- Diagnosis of TB infection and TB disease
- Treatment of TB infection and TB disease
- Treatment of TB in children
- Adherence to TB treatment
- TB and HIV infection
- Multi-drug resistant TB diagnosis and management
- TB infection prevention and control
