MSF and TB

Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors without Borders (MSF) has been treating people with tuberculosis (TB) for over 30 years and is now one of the biggest NGO providers of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) care worldwide.

Our staff are witness to the breadth of the TB crisis as it spans the globe, and in recent years the growing severity of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB).

MSF treated 29,900 patients for TB and 1,950 for MDR-TB in 2013.

Our teams treat people for TB in 29 countries in a wide variety of settings, ranging from urban slums to rural areas, prisons or refugee camps.
