After the establishment of a Task Force on Ethics and TB in 2008, the document was jointly developed by many stakeholders over a two-year period. It is the first document of its kind, and addresses a broad range of ethical issues arising in TB programmes, ranging from informed consent and isolation to health-care workers' rights and obligations, and clinical and epidemiological studies.
