Patients queue for anti-tuberculosis drugs at the Blue house clinic, run by medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), in the Mathare valley slums in Nairobi March 22, 2007. Living conditions in Africa's teeming slums have given rise to a multi-drug resistance strain of tuberculosis (MDR-TB) that kills nearly half of those who receive treatment, an aid agency said on Thursday.

A health care worker treats a tuberculosis patient at a rural hospital at Tugela Ferry in South Africa's impoverished KwaZulu Natal province, October 28, 2006. A new strain of the disease, called extreme drug resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB), has killed at least 79 people in the area since January 2005, prompting concern from the World Health Organisation who fear XDR-TB could become a major killer in AIDS-hit parts of Africa where governments have been slow to roll out TB control programs.
