Abstract : Introduction Although standardised tuberculosis (TB) treatment in India is delivered by the public sector through the Revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP), majority of patients in the country are treated with private anti-TB drugs. The objective of the study was to assess the treatment outcome of patients initiated on non-RNTCP regimen from a private tertiary-care centre from January to June 2016.
Patients and methods A nonconcurrent cohort study was done which followed up the patients who have been initiated on private anti-TB regimen from a private tertiary-care centre in Kerala, India, during the first and second quarter of 2016. Details of further visits were sought from the hospital health management information system. A phone call interview was done with all patients, 9–12 months after treatment initiation.
