Since Kyrgyzstan is one of the 27 high multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) burden countries listed by the WHO, MSF started a drug-resistant tuberculosis project in Kara Suu District in 2012. A qualitative study was undertaken to understand the perception of TB and DR-TB in order to improve the effectiveness and acceptance of the MSF intervention and to support advocacy strategies for an ambulatory model of care.

The first part of the research was done in the city of Dushanbe and its surroundings, the second part of the research took place in the rural southern region Khatlon. As MSF was not working in this region at the time, part of the research was facilitated by the national NGO Ghamghori and the local Red Crescent.
