Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP) covers all the 27 district of Assam. Currently, there are 150 numbers of Tuberculosis Unit (TU) and 350 numbers of Designated Microscopy Centres (DMC) to control Tuberculosis in Assam. More than 7,000 DOT Centers are running in the state for providing Directly Observed Treatment (DOT)to the TB patients.
The basic objective of the RNTCP programme is to ensure DOTS for all TB patients, achieve 90 percent notification rate for all TB cases, 90 percent success rate for all new and 85 percent for re-treatment cases.
The STO Assam TB Clinic was established in December 2017. This clinic is a fortnightly clinic where the hub team from the STO Office, Guwahati mentors and trains the DTOs and community physicians.
