Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (RNTCP) :

Introduction :

The programme is in the process of establishing a nation-wide network of quality assured sputum culture and drug susceptibility testing (C&DST) laboratories for the diagnosis and follow-up of drug resistant TB (DR-TB) patients and XDR patients. To supplement the planned sputum culture and DST laboratories in the public sector, this partnership option will help to involve established and well-functioning mycobacteriology laboratories in the non-governmental / private / corporate sector in assisting RNTCP’s sputum/specimen mycobacterial C&DST activities. Urban slum-dwellers require intensive focus and support from the tuberculosis programme, as these populations often are not able to access timely diagnosis or complete the full duration of anti TB treatment, and hence are at risk of unfavourable treatment outcomes including deaths, defaults, failures and drug resistance.
