Abstract

The issue of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDRTB) in the Australia/Papua New Guinea (PNG) crossborder region is an example of international health security at its most proximate and urgent. Since 2008, MDR-TB has been known to account for 25% of new cases of TB in the border region.1 Baird et al. found that 76% of Queensland’s diagnosed MDR-TB patients were cross-border PNG nationals.
