TIPS Handbook: Tools for implementing rheumatic heart disease control programmes (Second Edition)

Guideline (PDF 3.47 MB)
  • International
  • English
  • Clinician - community health worker

The TIPS Handbook is a resource for people and places developing rheumatic heart disease (RHD) control programs around the world. TIPS provides an overview of RHD and opportunities to reduce the burden of disease. The resource is intended to help describe, design, implement, and evaluate comprehensive RHD control programmes.

TIPS is structured around a priority based framework for programme delivery, outlined above. Program components are arranged in approximate order of priority, working from left to right, bottom to top, in each row. This conceptual framework emphasises the need to tackle less complex components (antibiotic supply) before more complex interventions (echo screening and cardiac surgery).

We encourage you to read the short list of ‘things to consider’ for each chapter to explore the most relevant components for your program – resources are being added to support components of each chapter. We look forward to your feedback on TIPS and emerging resources.

With thanks to people living with RHD who have shared their stories and experiences for this project, some of whom wished to do so anonymously.
