The gap between patients diagnosed with multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and enrollment
in treatment is one of the major challenges in tuberculosis control programs. A 4-year (2013–2016) retrospective
review of patients’ clinical data and subsequent in-depth interviews with health providers were conducted to assess
the effectiveness of the GeneXpert GxAlert platform for MDR-TB diagnosis and its impact on linkage of patients to
care in Tanzania.
