Out of step deadly implementation gaps in the TB response

MSF has been involved in tuberculosis (TB) care for 30 years, often working alongside national health authorities to treat patients in a wide variety of settings, including chronic conflict zones, urban slums, prisons, refugee camps and rural areas. MSF’s first programmes to treat multidrug-resistant TB opened in 1999, and the organisation is now one of the largest NGO treatment providers for drug-resistant TB. In 2013, the organisation treated 32,000 patients with TB in 24 countries, including 1,950 patients with drug-resistant TB.
