To reduce the magnitude of TB problem in the country to a level where it ceases to be a public health problem. 01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI Organization and administration Central level District level Besides the Tuberculosis Division in the Directorate General Health services, National Tuberculosis Institute, Bangalore and Tuberculosis Research centre at Chennai

A district constitutes a functional unit of the NTCP and is called District Tuberculosis Control Program Peripheral level Comprises of chest clinics and Primary Health Centers (PHC) 01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI Program Implementation( prior to RNTCP) Program activities were: Case detection Case treatment Health education BCG vaccination

01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI Program performance and evolution of RNTCP Despite a nationwide network of facilities , NTCP failed to yield satisfactory results. The situation did not change much. The case finding efficiency was only 30 of the expected level although the mortality rate decreased to 53/100,00 population Government of India launched the Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program(RNTCP) in 1997 encouraged by the results of Pilot studies were tested in 1993-94 01/31/20

Implemented as 100% centrally sponsored program Entire country covered in March06 through an unprecedented rapid expansion of DOTS Govt. of India is committed to continue the support till TB ceases to be a public health problem in the country All components of the STOP TB Strategy-2006 are being implemented 01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI Objectives of RNTCP

To achieve and maintain a cure rate of at least 85% among newly detected infectious (new sputum smear positive) cases To achieve and maintain detection of at least 70% of such cases in the population 01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI Strategy 1. 2. 3. 4.

Augmentation of organizational support at the central and state level for meaningful coordination Increase in budgetary outlay Use of Sputum microscopy as a primary method of diagnosis among self reporting patients Standardized treatment regimens. 01/31/20 Dr. KANUPRIYA CHATURVEDI contd.
