XDR-TB Drug Newly Available in Armenia: "This Is a Last Chance"
Marta is receiving bedaquilin and impenem for her extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) in Yerevan, Armenia. These are not new drugs but they are newly available in Armenia and can make treatment more effective. But, says TB doctor Hakob Atsheyan, "you can say this is a last chance."
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) treated nearly 30,000 TB patients in 2013 in 90 projects around the world. Join us and call for urgent action to improve care for DR-TB patients! Sign the MSF petition www.tbpetition.org.
