Sixty freshly diagnosed bacteriologically confirmed cases of pulmonary tuberculosis were thoroughly motivated and success of motivation was assessed using 10-point “Motivation Assessment Scoring Scale". The results of regularity of treatment in this group (Group ‘A’) were compared with a comparable group of 60 patient (Group ‘B’) motivated routinely at DTC 70.0% of Group A cases received at least12 monthly collections regularly as compared to 40% in Group B(P<0.05).
