Dear Colleagues,

Please, inform us about current status of the "WHO treatment guidelines for drug resistant tuberculosis. Update 2016". On the web: http: //www.who.int/tb/areas-of-work/drug-resistant-tb/treatment/resources/en/ we still can find only approved, but not final version of the guideline. When the formatted version of the guideline and appendices 4, 5, 6 will be available?

Sincerely,

Nelly Solomonia

Thank you Sambo,

There was no attachment. May I suggest the members to double check if a guideline or document has been recently shared, to avoid duplication. Instead you could add your comments or insights on how those documents relate to your setting.
