One of the constraints in the treatment of
tuberculosis (TB) patients is non-adherence to treatment
resulting in low treatment success rate, treatment failure
and increasing incidence of multidrug resistance. In
order to overcome this challenge, DOTS have been
implemented in some settings.
However, the treatment success rate of the
implementation of DOTS in this hospital has not been
determined. Therefore this study was to determine the
success rate in the implementation of DOTS strategy in
TB and Leprosy hospital.
