In the National Tuberculosis Programme (NTP), efficient treatment of newly diagnosed tuberculosis patients is considered as a chief tool for prevention and control of tuberculosis in the community. For this, facilities have been provided through the District Tuberculosis Programme (DTP), to diagnose sputum positive TB patients as a priority group, and to put them on treatment with standard drug regimens that are capable of giving favourable response in terms of sputum conversion. In order to ensure regular and adequate drug intake by the patients for the period of at least 12 months, a treatmentorganization with limited supervision and machinery for defaulter retrieval has been provided.
