HEALTH IS NOT A BUSINESS
Public Health Consulting Group (PHCG) is a company operating in the health sector whose mission is to support training, technical assistance, research and consultancy. PHCG has a high level of expertise in the area of tuberculosis, lung diseases and HIV/AIDS. The PHCG staff and consultants include some of the top names at the global level in this field.
The PHCG organizes unique global courses on how to implement the WHO End-TB Strategy. Over the last 18 years, more than half of the human resources managing TB and TB/HIV programmes around the world have been trained at the “Sondalo Course”, which is one of the WHO requisites to become international consultants for TB and TB/HIV.
Technical assistance has been provided in dozens of countries across all continents as testified by the impressive amount of training materials and guidelines developed, as well as by the collaborative research projects published in high level journals. Notably the PHCG staff led the development of the WHO Framework for tuberculosis elimination in low-incidence countries (2014) and, more recently, the establishment of the Global TB Network (GTN) which aims to foster and conduct research on key unmet therapeutic and diagnostic needs in the field of TB elimination leveraging on multi-disciplinary, multi-sectorial approaches and supportive interventions within the framework of the WHO End TB Strategy (2018).
