The authors compared the healthcare costs and treatment outcomes among multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and non MDR-TB patients in Latvia to identify benefits or costs associated with both. They conclude that up to 2/3 of MDR-TB treated in their sample was preventable at a potential savings of over US$ 1.3 million in healthcare resources as well as substantial individual health.
