HANOI, November 25, 2015 -- Today, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced that Bedaquiline, the first new medication to fight drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB) in over 40 years, is now available in Vietnam through its partnership with Janssen Therapeutics of Johnson & Johnson. This innovative partnership is a significant step forward in the global fight against the growing health threat of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Tuberculosis remains one of the most common communicable diseases in Vietnam with 130,000 new cases found and 17,000 deaths every year. As the public health burden of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis is also prevalent, Vietnam is among the first countries in the world receiving the Bedaquiline donation to support its continuing efforts to fight the disease.

A lifetime may seem long, but TB involves complex challenges and a lot of work.
