Abstract: Drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) poses a serious threat to tuberculosis (TB) control in Brazil and worldwide. The current study investigated factors associated with loss to follow-up and death in the course of treatment for DR-TB in a tertiary reference center in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

“…Strengthening and decentralizing this surveillance system are goals that have already been achieved, to the extent that the system is comprised of decentralized and integrated workflows, with the participation of health service managers from different government levels and health facilities. Identification of studies and evaluations using SITETB data, 5,10,24,25 as well as stock control and control of medication shipments, which are activities routinely carried out by SITETB, enable the system's usefulness to be recognized.…”

“…Todo aquello, hace aún más preocupante los actuales resultados de la terapia anti-tuberculosis; en la cohorte de pacientes del 2017, se observa que 24,1% abandonó la terapia y 21,5% falleció. En efecto, la coinfección TB/VIH implica per se, un riesgo de letalidad 3 veces mayor que la TB por sí misma 27 , por lo tanto, se requiere de mejores métodos de pesquisa y estudio de contacto más eficientes 1,28 , como por ejemplo la implementación de agentes comunitarios en salud 29 .…”
