The present study was undertaken to compare the efficacy, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of three short-course regimens with a standard programme for treatment of new tuberculosis (TB) cases.
The study was conducted by reviewing the results of TB treatment in 1642 newly diagnosed, sputum positive pulmonary TB patients with four drug regimens carried out in five zonal TB centres throughout Thailand in 1987-1989.
Analysis showed that the three short-course regimens were more cost-effective than the standard regimen from the perspective of both providers and patients.
