Abstract

There is no clear evidence of an increase in the prevalence of initial drug resistance in India over the years. However, relatively high prevalence of acquired resistance has been reported. The level of initial drug resistance is said to be an epidemiological marker to assess the success of the National TB Programme. This also influences the design of the regimens to be employed as well as policy decisions.
