Antibiotics, Drug Resistance, and Compliance in Kenya

Kenya was one of the first places where antibiotics like isoniazid appeared in Africa. However, drug-resistant strains of TB quickly appeared as a result of inadequate monitoring of drug usage. To combat the problem of drug resistance the British Medical Research Council, at times with the aid of the WHO, ran several successful trials looking for a multidrug regimen that would be cheap and effective. The drug-resistance problem in Kenya, and elsewhere, might prove too much.
