The problem of tuberculosis has grown to become a major public health problem. The situation is really scary in the developing countries due to the ever-growing numbers of the drug resistant TB cases. The multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) has become a big issue due to the longer treatment duration, high pill burden and relatively common adverse drug reactions due to comparatively toxic second line antitubercular drugs. The role of a counselor in the treatment adherence and success is very important. In this article the authors highlight the importance of a counselor in the management of MDR-TB.
