Nutritional support and a community-based program to treat multi-drug resistant tuberculosis in HIV infected patients

 Providing meals and nutritional support may support compliance with other important initiatives.  For example, school-based meal programs may help improve school attendance, in addition to improving the nutritional status of children.  IN Africa, multi-drug resistant tuberculosis is an important public health problem, and the problem is particularly challenging in HIV infected patients, who have a high mortality rate and are highly infectious.  Historically, hospital-based treatment has been the norm, but this is both expensive and often unavailable.
