Tajikistan, in Central Asia, has a high burden of TB and is presumed to have the highest burden of multidrug-resistant TB in the world. MSF has been running TB projects in neighboring Uzbekistan for many years, but started a unique new project in Tajikistan in 2011, focussed on the neglected field of pediatric MDR-TB.
