After completion of TB treatment, all patients should be followed up at the end of

  • 6 months,
  • 12 months,
  • 18 months &
  • 24 months

TB patients at the follow up should be screened for any clinical symptoms and/or cough. If found positive on screening, then sputum microscopy and/or culture should be considered. This is important in detecting the recurrence of TB at the earliest.

After completion of TB treatment, if the patient has not developed any clinical symptoms and/or cough and also if the microscopy remains negative during their follow up, then the patient is considered as “Relapse Free Cure from TB.”
