Infection prevention and control for drug-resistant tuberculosis in South Africa in the era of decentralised care: a whole systems approach

This research aims to contribute to: 1) the development of evidence-based policies for the more effective reduction of nosocomial transmission of DR-TB in health facilities in high burden settings; and 2) a paradigm shift towards IPC measures for DR-TB in health facilities that are grounded in a whole systems approach. In order to achieve this impact, there are four key groups that are intended beneficiaries of this research.
