To support the work ahead, the World Health Organization’s Global TB Programme has developed operational guidance, The Essentials, for effective adaptation and implementation of the new Strategy. The Essentials provides in-depth explanations of the vision, goal, targets, and milestones of the End TB Strategy, as well as key indicators to measure progress.

This is the second edition of the "Red Book". It provides guidance to national tuberculosis programmes and the laboratory network on the role of TB laboratory services. It outlines the main responsibilities within the network and the technical and organisational aspects of microscopic sputum-smear examination and the surveillance of anti-tuberculosis drug resistance. The purpose of this monograph is to complement other texts on mycobacteriology and thus it is limited in its scope and emphasis.
