Community-based DR-TB treatment is an important care model for vulnerable patients to successfully complete their treatment. In Shiselweni, it has been demonstrated that the risk of death and other unfavourable outcome had the tendency to be decreased in the community-based model utilizing CTS for treatment provision than the clinic-based, even though the patients eligible for this model would be considered at an increased risk of loss from treatment (LFT) and death in many DR-TB programmes.

This study was conducted by Doris Burtscher on behalf of the MSF Vienna Evaluation Unit.
