Abstract

Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is a major threat to tuberculosis control in many parts of the world. The current options for managing this form of the disease are an optimal use of existing drugs, use of re-purposed or new drugs and some non-antibiotic therapeutic options. The prevention of the creation and transmission of drug-resistant strains will be crucial for the global management of tuberculosis in the future.
