DOTS For Tuberculosis TO Cover Entire Country
The Directly Observed Treatment Short-course (DOTS) tuberculosis control programme will cover the entire country by November 2006 said union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss said here Sunday.

"The drugs for the DOTS programme will be made available even in petty shops and dhabas in remote areas," said the minister at a function here to open a new HIV vaccine trial and patient care facility.

The facility has come up at the Tuberculosis Research Centre (TRC) here at a cost of Rs.112.5 million.

The TRC, an institution under the umbrella of the Indian Council of Medical Research, was set up in 1956 and is marking its golden jubilee this year.
