Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) is undertaking to develop a training module in the framework of WHO funded project “Developing TB services for people who use drugs”. The project aims to increase capacity of CBOs and NGOs working in harm reduction field, including service providers and communities of IDUs, to provide (1) TB related services, (2) technical support and (3) engage in advocacy actions to increase access to TB services for IDUs. Training module is developed as part of joint efforts of EHRN, WHO, and OSF in response to TB epidemics among injecting drug users in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

This module will be based on WHO guidelines for collaborative TB and HIV services for drug users, according to evidence based policy activities on TB/HIV and drug use response, following WHO Clinical protocol for TB/HIV co-infection management and using already developed capacity development tools.

The structure of the module will correspond to the training modules developed in the framework of the Harm Reduction Knowledge Hub for Europe and Central Asia. The training module should be suitable for adoption for trainings targeting the stakeholders including medical professionals, ministries and local harm reduction providers. Detailed training module description is provided in the concept of the training module Annex 1.

The Terms of References are directed for identifying consultants and experts to develop the described training module. For application please send you CV and short (half page) motivation letter to hub@harm-reduction.org by February 29.
