      Hi friends,

      here is the latest change regarding the RNTCP (Rural National Tuberculosis Control Programme):

      Introduced on 1st April 2009

      1.Earlier 3 weeks duration of cough was the criteria to screen for tuberculosis---- after the release of new guidelines
      it is 2 weeks duration of cough..




      Earlier 3 sputum samples were to be taken and analysed..
      now only 2 sputum samples are to be looked for..



      2. The 2 sputum samples should be

      a.spot
      b.early morning sample.

      3.STOP TB is the new logo... which also is based on principles of DOTS
