Title of presentation: Update on the treatment guidelines of MDR TB treatment from WHO: practical implications for clinicians.

Summary: This presentation will focus on how to implement the new guidelines in newly diagnosed patients. While the WHO guidelines give good programmatic input, as clinicians we are faced with complex clinical situations often compounded by patients’ challenging psycho-social situations.  Practical solutions in the day to day patient management will be discussed.

Presenter: Dr. Francesca Conradie (MBBCh, Wits University in South Africa, DTM&H)
