The aim of the course is to provide participants with an updated insight into tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections in the increasing susceptible population worldwide. The course will develop a detailed understanding of immunopathogenic, clinical, therapeutic and preventive aspects of mycobacterial infections associated with the most common comorbidities.
Up to 50 clinical microbiologists, infectious diseases specialists or other healthcare professionals involved in management of tuberculosis and non-tuberculosis mycobacterial infections in vulnerable populations.
