Abstract:
Tuberculosis has emerged as a major health problem contributing to 75% of deaths among the HIV positive people and remained with a dubious recognition of the commonest cause of death among the women in childbearing age. Revised national Tuberculosis control programme (RNTCP) has been started including critical components of the programme like sputum microscopy and DOTS. The urban health infrastructure has surfaced as one of the concern areas in reaching the services to all the people living in slums and in the peri-urban areas. Under the RNTCP, to achieve the cure rate of 85% of registered cases and to detect 70% of the cases in the community, innovative strategies were followed. The programme in the urban project was implemented through five Microscopy centers covering 5.9 lakhs population. Five microscopy centers were used to screen people from various backgrounds and to provide Directly Observed Treatment Short course chemotherapy (DOTS). During the period April 2002 to May 2005 1665 cases of tuberculosis were registered for treatment. These cases were analyzed to find the TB disease burden on women and children. Among the 1665 study cases 708 (42.5%) are women and 71 (4.3%) are children. Among the 71 children 43 are females and 28 are males. The analysis of the 1665 TB cases in relation to type of TB, Sputum status, geographic distribution, prognosis and mode of detection with special reference to the women and children will be presented.
