 National Tuberculosis Control Program (NTCP) is All Set to be Revised

The National Tuberculosis Control Program (NTCP) is all set to be revised. For the past 3 consecutive years, the Government has been successful in achieving the global objectives of 70% new case detection and 85% treatment success rate and so NTCP will be revised.

'Universal access to quality tuberculosis (TB) care for all the TB patients' will be the new objective of Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (RNTCP) so that all TB patients in the community will have access to early, good quality diagnosis and treatment services. Under the WHO-recommended Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) in the RNTCB all TB patients will get free diagnosis and drugs for 6-8 months. By 2015 the RNTCP aims at detecting and successfully treating 90% of all TB cases.
