Guidelines for treatment of drug-susceptible tuberculosis 2017 UPDATE

Hello Awesomites :D

This is to inform you the updated guidelines.
I was overwhelmed with the data in the book. I tried to simplify it.

1.The name given to this scheme is "99 DOTS"
99 means that 99% benefits should reach to all the people who are enrolled under this programme.

2.INTRODUCTION OF FDC (fixed dose combination)
 (Please make a correction in the following diagram :- ETHAMBUTOL=275mg)

3. FROM THRICE WEEKLY TO "DAILY DOSING"
4.Information technology is incorporated to monitor the adherence of patient to treatment regimen.
5.REGIMEN :-
6. DOSE OF THESE DRUGS :-
7. IMPLEMENTATION :-
by toll free no. 

I hope it helped. 
(Edit1:- 99DOTS
