Abstract: Tuberculosis becomes resistant to drugs either because treatment regimens are inadequate or because patients fail to adhere to them. The recent rise in the number of new cases mostly involves HIV-infected patients and immigrants from countries where drug-resistant organisms are prevalent, which means that tuberculosis today affects a different population than in the past. Coping with this set of problems requires establishing effective drug treatment programs and ensuring that they are carried out by means of directly observed therapy.
