Malawi, 2008 - 2011

LATH, in collaboration with the REACH Trust and MSH through the TBCAP programme, has been supporting the Malawi National Tuberculosis Programme to develop and implement a national multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR) survey. To achieve this objective LATH has been involved in providing technical expertise to develop MDR and Extensively Drug Resistant (XDR) TB survey protocols, refurbish the national tuberculosis reference laboratory to an appropriate international standard and to improve data handling.
