The TB Control Unit (TBCU) functions as the national referral centre for TB evaluation and treatment, for the tracing of treatment defaulters, and for the management of complicated or drug-resistant TB patients. It manages 80% of the country's TB cases, the vast majority of which are treated under Directly Observed Therapy (DOT). Another major function of the TBCU is the screening of close contacts in households, workplaces and congregate settings (such as schools and prisons) for active and latent TB, and provision of preventive therapy for contacts found to have latent TB infection.
