National Action Plan for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis
White House (au)
Tuberculosis (TB) kills almost 30,000 people each week. The disease is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb), which is transmitted through the air from person to person. Currently, more than two billion people, nearly one-third of the worldäó»s population, are estimated to be infected with Mtb (latent TB) and are at risk of developing the disease. TB is curable, but inappropriate treatment can lead to multidrug -resistant TB (MDR-TB), which is resistant to the two most effective anti-TB drugs, and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB), which is resistant to many anti-TB drugs. The goals of this National Action Plan are to: (1) Strengthen domestic capacity to combat MDR-TB; (2) Improve international capacity and collaboration to combat MDR-TB; and (3) Accelerate basic and applied R&D to combat MDR-TB.
