Abstract

Analysis of the functioning of peripheral health institutions in DTPs has revealed that the X-ray Centres are functioning more satisfactorily in respect of quality of case-finding compared to Microscopy Centres. With regard to Referring Centres, their poor performance needs a detailed investigation. Overall, the performance of PHIs in DTPs needs to be studied and the key factors identified so that these can be made use of in strengthening the DTP functioning.
