Tuberculosis and Leprosy

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the infectious diseases in communities in the State. Similarly, leprosy also contributes significantly to the infectious disease burden in the State. Both diseases are of public health interest and are managed in some of the primary health centres (PHCs). Tuberculosis is managed in the State by the universally acclaimed Directly Observed Treatment Shortcourse (DOTS) method. DOTS approach ensures effective diagnosis and treatment of infectious cases. Some of the PHCs in the State have been designated as DOTs sites that manage tuberculosis cases. At the Board level, the State Tuberculosis and Leprosy Control Officer (STBLCO) is responsible for the planning, organizing and implementing of tuberculosis and leprosy (TBL) programs.
