The World Health Organization’s Global Tuberculosis Report in 2016 estimates that there are 79,000 cases of MDR-TB or Multi-Drug Resistance Tuberculosis. This is becoming a serious problem and a big public health issue. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium Tuberculosis. It is spread from person to person through the air. When people affected with tuberculosis sneeze, spit or cough, the bacteria goes into the air and if someone inhales these germs, they can become affected. It usually affects the lungs but can also spread to all other organs of the body. Symptoms of tuberculosis include cough, low grade fever, night sweats or unexplained weight loss. When a person develops tuberculosis, they can have mild symptoms for many months before being detected with the infection. People affected with HIV are 20 to 30 more times likely to develop active tuberculosis. Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis An active case of tuberculosis usually can be treated with a standard 6 month course of 4 anti-Tb drugs. Since these medications have been used for many years, new forms of Tb that are resistant to the standard Tb drugs are being seen. There are multiple forms of Drug Resistant Tuberculosis that includes 1. Multi Drug Resistant Tb or MDR-TB. 2. Extensively-Drug Resistant Tb or XDR-TB. 3. Extremely drug resistant TB or XXDR. Various reasons have lead to drug resistant form of tuberculosis 1. Delays in Detection and Referral. 2. Adherence to Treatment Regimens. 3. Expensive Drug Regimens. According to the WHO, 480,000 people were affected with MDR-TB in 2015 worldwide. In India, it is estimated that 2.5% of all new TB cases are MDR-TB.

There are many forgotten crises in this world, and one of them is Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB). In this video you'll see what MDR-TB has done over the last 10 years, which should make you open your eyes and realise how terrible this disease really is.

Ignored for the past fifty years, the needs of patients suffering from tuberculosis are finally being addressed... especially for patients with a multi-drug resistant form of the disease, who can now hope to have access to effective treatments within the next few years. So why are these new treatments needed so badly? Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis is a real killer, and a major public health issue. Tuberculosis, or TB, is an infectious disease that is treated with antibiotics. But some bacteria have found ways to resist or fght off the drug due to incorrectly administered treatment. When the two main antibiotics stop being effective against the disease, it is labelled multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, or MDR-TB These are the 27 worst affected countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belorussia, Bulgaria, Chine, DRC, Ethiopia, Estonia, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldavia, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Russia, South Africa, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam. Because it exhausts all available treatment options, MDR-TB is very hard to treat. Treatment lasts two years and patients take up to 14,600 pills... and have hundreds of injections. Treatment is successful in only 50% of cases, and causes severe side effects. Each year, there are an estimated 450,000 new cases of MDR-TB. And until now, these patients have been ignored by pharmaceutical research. In 2012 - 2013 there was a major development: the registration and clinical trials of two new drugs: bedaquiline and delamanid. But two years on, fewer than 3% of patients have access to one or other of these drugs, despite their proven effectiveness Why? Because the use of these drugs, still in the development phase, remains a long and complex process. We still lack scientific information: how can the different drugs be combined to deliver effective treatment without causing serious side effects? This situation is set to change, thanks to a project bringing together MSF and two partners, and funded by Unitaid. In 4 years time, in 16 countries, 2,600 patients with MDR-TB will have access to treatment that will include the new drugs. And clinical trials will determine which combination of drugs will deliver the best treatment. By speeding up research, this project may provide hundreds of thousands of people access to effective treatment—the best way to stop the spread of the disease.
