Rifampin Shortage – Drug Stockpile Direct Assistance

In December 2021, with the announcement of a temporary national shortage, DTBE has decided to release rifampin currently in the Emergency Drug Stockpile. For information on what medication is available and how to request it, click here to read the updated Dear Colleague Email. DTBE will prioritize release of rifampin to programs with patients being treated for TB disease who are at risk of treatment interruption because of the shortage. Rifampin will be released in order of expiration date and availability.
