Although the Republic of Moldova faces serious challenges related to both TB and especially drug-resistant TB burden, having one of the highest rates of MDR-TB in the WHO European Region, it has also made signifi cant strides in reducing TB incidence and improving access to diagnostics and DR-TB treatment. In recent years, it has even piloted fully ambulatory MDR-TB treatment and strengthened peer and community-based support. Th ere is still much to be done, but there are many promising collaborations and projects which show that Moldova is not only taking the problem of TB seriously, but is open to innovative, patient-centred approaches.
