DR-TB STAT, an officially recognized task force of the Global Drug-Resistance Initiative (GDI) since July, 2015, continues to host monthly meetings to facilitate the introduction of bedaquiline and delamanid under program conditions. The group, which was formed in response to the "Call to Action" on new drug introduction, began meeting in May of 2015 and has reviewed the progress of new drug introduction in key countries, including South Africa, India, Indonesia, Georgia, the Philippines, Lesotho, Kenya, Swaziland, Peru and Vietnam. Multiple stakeholders have come together during the calls to help troubleshoot issues in new drug introduction.
