Abstract

The District Tuberculosis Programme (DTP) seeks to address itself to the problem of tuberculosis in the community, through finding as many of the cases as possible and offering them treatment near to their homes. The services are rendered through the existing system of health care delivery, utilising the widespread network in a permanent manner. The case-finding in the programme is carried out from among the chest symptornatics reporting on their own to the various general health institutions.
