Drug resistance is one of the main challenges confronting HIV and TB programmes in Africa. Facing these challenges requires an understanding of how drug resistance develops, as well as up-to-date knowledge of how to diagnose and manage drug-resistant HIV and TB diseases. This book uses a case-based learning approach to present healthcare workers with the most important information needed to enable them to offer their patients the best possible care, and to improve their programmes and prevent the emergence and spread of drug resistance.

Middelweerstand is een van die hoofuitdagings vir MIV- en TB-programme in Afrika. Om hierdie uitdagings die hoof te bied, verg begrip van hoe middelweerstand ontwikkel, asook die jongste kennis oor die diagnose en bestuur van middelweerstandige MIV- en TB-siektes. Die boek het 'n leerbenadering wat op werklike gevalle gebaseer is ten einde aan gesondheidswerkers die belangrikste inligting te gee wat hulle benodig om aan hul pasiente die beste moontlik sorg te bied, asook om hul programme te verbeter en die ontstaan en verspreiding van weerstand teen middele te voorkom.
