Treatment of Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB)
Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is difficult to treat and there exists a dearth of information about this infectious disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) developed the Stop TB Strategy and guidelines on how to prevent, control and treat MDR-TB by using available data worldwide.
Guidelines, however, are theoretical knowledge that is not easily transferrable into actual practice. The WMA therefore volunteered to produce a learning programme for the MDR-TB Guidelines. The course was updated together with the new WHO MDR-TB strategy in 2010.
This MDR-TB online course exists as a free self-learning online tool in English and Mandarin Chinese allowing physicians worldwide to learn and test their knowledge about MDR-TB. It is accredited by the South African Medical Association and the Norwegian Medical Association and therefore will be recognised in whole Europe.
To increase the access to MDR-TB training globally a PDF version of the course will be translated into French, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and Azeri soon. The course is written by the New Jersey Medical School Global Tuberculosis Institute and supported by the MDR-TB partnership.
