Delivering Comprehensive Supportive Care to People With Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis

Drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) is a significant global health threat, with an estimated 600,000 cases occurring annually. The United States Government committed to address DR-TB, both domestically and internationally, in the National Action Plan for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis. This Practical Toolkit is part of that effort. This Toolkit provides national TB control programs, implementing partners, community-based organizations, and support groups with a standardized framework for supportive services derived from international guidance and best practices from the field. Using the Toolkit will help programs deliver high-quality and effective care to people with DR-TB, with the goal of better outcomes for all.
