Treatment and enhanced support. 1,000 people with multidrug resistant tuberculosis shall receive treatment not only in the hospital, but also after going home.
One thousand patients detected with multidrug resistant tuberculosis receive quality treatment, starting with March. At the same time, once they go home, they, together with other 500 patients (who receive treatment through governmental financing) shall be monitored by the doctors from the local TB dispensaries, so that they don’t discontinue the therapy. In order to help them cope with the new situation which involves many costs (from those related to healthy nutrition, to support the body, to those related to regular checks which imply travelling to the doctor), all the 1500 patients shall receive, starting with May 2015, monthly social tickets of 80 lei, the main goal being to help them follow the correct administration of anti-TB treatment.
