E-DRUG: MSF: TB is spiralling out of control (2)
-----------------------------------------------

Dear all,

I wish to echo the concern that has been rightly identified by MSF about
the frustrations of treating TB in resource-limited settings like in
Africa where drugs and diagnostics remain the same as they were 40 years
ago, with clear upsurges in treatment failures and relapses of TB even
among successfully treated patients. What are needed to control TB in
settings like ours are greater investments in NEWER and more accurate
diagnostic tools for TB, and more R&D on new TB drugs.
