Status of bacillary tuberculosis cases identified in a community survey under different control programmes

, : Status of bacillary tuberculosis cases identified in a community survey under different control programmes. International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease 10(4): 466-468

We report the status of bacillary tuberculosis (TB) cases identified in community surveys undertaken at 2.5-year intervals. We observed three cohort periods to represent the different TB control programmes, namely 12-18 months of treatment (pre-short-course chemotherapy [pre-SCC]), 6-8 months SCC and DOTS in the area. There was a significant reduction in deaths from 23% to 17%, and an increase in the proportion of cases negative by smear and/or culture for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, from 54% to 58% in the pre-SCC and SCC cohorts to 80% in the DOTS cohort. These findings suggest that the DOTS strategy could have a significant influence on TB epidemiology.
