Excerpt
SUMMARY DOTS-Plus means DOTS first. Potential DOTS-Plus pilot projects that (1) build on the foundation of a solid DOTS-based TB control programme, (2) design their project within the principles put forth in the Guidelines for Establishing DOTS-Plus Pilot Projects for the Management of Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB), and (3) write their application in the format prescribed in these Instructions For Applying to the Green Light Committee for Access to Second-Line Anti-Tuberculosis Drugs (herein after referred to as the Instructions) have an excellent likelihood of receiving the “green light” from the Green Light Committee (GLC) to participate in the pooled procurement of second-line anti-TB drugs at preferential prices. Moreover, the application process may lead to enhanced communication between the project site and the WHO, the members of the Working Group, and the GLC. This will benefit all parties involved, but most importantly patients with MDR-TB. The feedback and monitoring process for DOTS-Plus pilot projects incorporating the principles of the Guidelines for Establishing DOTS-Plus Pilot Projects for the Management of Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB), should provide the clinical and programmatic experience needed to develop global standards for the prevention and control of MDR-TB.
