Shamila Hamid Qadri, Syed Arshad Hussain Andrabi.




Abstract

India is a high burden country for tuberculosis (TB). The Stop TB strat-egy 2006-2015 of Revised National Tuberculosis Control Programme (RNTCP) aimed to engage directly with private healthcare sector to ensure patients have access to high quality DOTS. A cross-sectional study was conducted using a self-administered questionnaire to assess the knowledge and attitude of private practitioners regarding the operational component of RNTCP. Though majority of study subjects had correct knowledge and good attitude about diagnostic aspects of TB, but there were clear gaps in between. Sensitization of private practitioners regarding RNTCP needs to be intensified.

Key words: DOTS, Knowledge, Private practitioners, RNTCP, Tuberculosis
