NOTE: The first map represents data from the third global WHO/IUATLD report, published in 2004 (WHO, 2004); the second map represents data from the fourth WHO/IUATLD global report, published in 2008 (WHO, 2008b), as well as other sources; and the last map is based on a formula developed by Zignol et al., 2006, to estimate the MDR TB rate in countries in which a drug resistance survey was never conducted.
