We are committed to making the most current TB medication adherence resources readily available for stakeholders in Global Health! Our partner, Ramnath Subbaraman, recently co-authored a chapter in the third edition of GP Clinics “Let’s Talk TB,” a textbook supplement for general practitioners in India.
The chapter discusses monitoring technologies, such as cell phone-based strategies and electronic pillboxes, as tools that can facilitate identification of patient medication non-adherence.
Once identified, the authors stress the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to improving TB medication adherence. More specifically, they suggest a four-pronged approach that includes tackling the clinical and social determinants of non-adherence: drug toxicities, nutrition, comorbidities and psychosocial barriers.
