Drug resistant TB is a form of TB which is resistant to at least four of the core anti TB drugs including the two most powerful (isoniazid and rifampicin). There is about 600,000 new cases every year. There are 1500 deaths from TB every day in Africa and given increasing trends towards globalization the crisis is not just confined to developing areas, all countries are potential targets for outbreaks of Multi Drug Resistant TB. We are hoping to highlight the issues surrounding access to treatment of DR-TB and how we can enhance this access to the people that need them most.
