MDR/XDR-TB Assessment and Monitoring Tool

The MDR/XDR-TB Assessment and Monitoring Tool was designed to help national tuberculosis program staff, consultants, and donors conduct a baseline assessment for use in preparing a plan or funding application, monitoring progress, or identifying needs for technical assistance. It addresses two key questions: are there high-priority gaps in the DOTS program that must be corrected to prevent the development of cases of multidrug-resistant/extensively drug-resistant (MDR/XDR-TB), and what high-priority areas should be addressed to improve diagnosis and treatment of MDR/XDR-TB? The tool is available in English, Russian, and Spanish as a Microsoft Word file (for users who wish to modify it) and as an Adobe PDF file (recommended for printing). This 2009 tool informed the 2012 MDR-TB Planning Toolkit, which can be found here.
