Treatment outcomes for multidrug- and rifampicin-resistant tuberculosis in Central and West Africa: a systematic review and meta-analysis
We aimed to investigate published data on treatment outcomes of MDR/RR-TB in Central and West Africa as these, to our knowledge, are sparsely available.
The use of shorter treatment regimens and the standardized treatment conditions including DOT in these studies could have contributed to a high treatment success. Yet, the available literature was not fully representative of the regions, possibly highlighting the sparse resources in many of these countries.
