A movement to promote and conduct research on the treatment and prevention of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) and provide access to effective cure and prevention of DR-TB throughout the world.

Over ten million people will develop tuberculosis (TB) in the world this year; over 500,000 of these will have multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). Some will receive treatment. However, we know little about the best ways of treating drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) and preventing tuberculosis in people who come in contact with DR-TB patients. TB control efforts require new evidence-based knowledge about optimal treatment regimens, prophylaxis, and regimens involving new TB drugs in order to address the growing health threats of MDR-TB and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.
