HNTC Doctors and Partners Featured in CDC MMWR, Volume 72, Number 35

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report recently featured an article in the September 1, 2023 edition regarding an outbreak of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) in Kansas over the course a year, starting in November 2021. During this time, collaborations and partnerships between the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE), Heartland National TB Center's medical consultants, the CDC, and private providers ensured patients were given the best care and treatment they could receive in addition to preventing further transmission in a low-income, at-risk community. This particular outbreak was notable due to the number of patients with MDR TB across four affected households as well as the use of Delamanid, which was authorized for compassionate use by the FDA for the affected children. Heartland is grateful to have played a part in the outstanding care provided by KDHE.
