In July 2018, TREAT TB launched a webinar series to strengthen capacity to conduct high quality MDR-TB trials. Please see below for the first webinar in the series.

Webinar 1: Challenges with MDR-TB clinical trial implementation – Site and sponsor perspectives.

The first webinar brought together eight experts to discuss the challenges faced when implementing MDR-TB clinical trials. The presentations provided an overview of ongoing and future trials and covered various aspects of MDR-TB clinical trial implementation, such as patient recruitment, enrolment and retention, challenges encountered by sponsors and regulatory requirements such as import and export permits.
