Abstract In a nationwide survey in 2011, multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) was found in 5.2\% and 40.8\% of patients with new and previously treated TB, respectively. These levels of drug resistance are among the highest ever documented in Africa and the Middle East. This finding presents a serious challenge for TB control in Somalia.
