Abstract

To determine whether spatiotemporal information could help predict multidrug resistance at the time of tuberculosis diagnosis, we investigated tuberculosis patients who underwent drug susceptibility testing in Lima, Peru, during 2005-2007. We found that crude representation of spatial location at the level of the health center improved prediction of multidrug resistance.
