Adherence to TB treatment in Chongqing. Situational analysis and policy implications

Abstract

Effective tuberculosis control is a priority for the Government of China, and the Chongqing Institute of TB Prevention and Treatment has striven to improve care in the Province. As a result of better detection and better service provision, registered TB patients have increased from 9,866 in 2002 to 16,655 in 2004, with a slight fall to 14,029 in 2005.

In 2003, the MoH awarded a grant to the Chongqing Institute to investigate direct observation which is a core part of the government's Directly Observed Treatment Short-course (DOTS) strategy. This is an interim report of the findings and their policy implications.
