Excerpt
Introduction The emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) could threaten global TB control. The treatment of patients with MDR-TB is prolonged, expensive and often unsuccessful (1, 2). Many experts assert that standard TB control prevents the emergence of MDR-TB in a cost-effective way (3). Others argue that it is unethical to abandon patients with MDRTB and maintain that, if untreated, MDR-TB strains will become dominant and undermine TB control in future generations (4). These arguments are of particular consequence in settings where resources are scarce. While additional evidence would help to define the right point between efficiency and equity, we propose a preliminary rational framework for addressing the problem of MDR-TB in various circumstances.
