The treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) is often influenced by adverse drug reactions and can impact patient outcomes. Thus, the WHO recommends targeted spontaneous reporting for special populations, such as those living with DR-TB, who are specifically monitored for adverse events. While the incidence of adverse events associated with DR-TB medication are well documented, the reporting to regulatory bodies is lacking. The primary aim of the study was to understand the current adverse event reporting practices in specialised DR-TB treatment facilities in South Africa.
