This project brief describes PATH's work in the Democratic Republic of Congo to control and treat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). The brief outlines a project to train national clinicians to diagnose MDR-TB, strengthen the diagnostic capacities of local laboratories, and mobilize communities to help patients successfully complete treatment. All of this work was made possible with generous funding from the United States Agency for International Development.
