Better treatment adherence

12 Major Challenges Drug-resistance survey conducted in showed that 7,7% of the new smear positive TB cases and 33,9% of the previously treated cases have MDR forms of TB respectively Patients seeking treatment too late (particularly men) More than 10% of TB patients die during the TB treatment and 10% default. Drugs supply to clinics and drug management Patients’ access to facilities remains problematic Community mobilization for support to patients – key to adherence Stigma attached to HIV and TB in communities Diagnosis and treatment of MDR TB patients, and management of side effects In spite of progress, still limited lab capacity – new TB lab Nhlangano
