STEP Registry

The STEP Registry, a national surveillance registry, receives TB notification and data on treatment progress for every tuberculosis patient treated until an outcome is achieved. The registry not only serves to monitor treatment outcome and success rates but also alerts physicians if patients default on treatment or do not respond as expected.
