Tuberculosis kills an estimate of 1. It is also one of the most serious public health challenges in Ethiopia.
Ethiopia is ranked second after Nigeria and seventh globally among the mdr tb in ethiopia countries with high TB burden [ 2 ]. MDR-TB is a man-made problem due to poor management and quality of antituberculosis drugs. According to the Ethiopian national TB drug resistance surveillance reported, 2.
