Status of tuberculosis control in Thailand.
The national tuberculosis control program (NTP) was implemented in Thailand as integrated with the provincial general health services since 1967, with BCG vaccination successfully introduced from the beginning, but progress in expansion of case-finding and chemotherapy had only been achieved following the establishment of hospitals at the district level since the late seventies.
At present, case-detection and treatment have operated in more than 95% of the 600 district hospitals and &7 hospitals at provincial and regional levels, with patient follow-up by health centers, logistically supported and technically supervised by 12 zonal TB centers.
