There has been significant change in management of tuberculosis ever since pre-chemotherapeutic era to the present day RNTCP protocol based on specific disease catrogies. This has been based on knowledge of rational use of anti-TB drugs. DOTS has added new dimensions to TB control program. Public-private partership will foster the way ahead for better outcome, only if every physician follows management protocol.
