File Type: PDF | File Size: 1.05 MB

FAST represents a strategy for reducing TB and MDR-TB (multidrug-resistant tuberculosis) transmission, while providing quality care to those with TB. Finding and treating patients with TB and MDR-TB helps to reduce TB transmission to healthcare workers and other patients who are susceptible to contracting TB. This strategy is built around the notion that prompt diagnosis and effective treatment is by far the most important activity for preventing the spread of TB.
