National Guidelines on the Implementation of Truenat Tests for the Detection of Tuberculosis and Rifampicin Resistance

The NTBLCP has adopted a strategic approach for the implementation of Truenat MTB-RIF Dx that maximizes the utilization of the machine in meeting the country’s TB diagnostic needs. The national tools shall be reviewed to accommodate Truenat MTB-RIF Dx. Sets of key indicators and milestones shall be used to monitor the implementation.

The NTBLCP in collaboration with partners has made tremendous efforts in ensuring that the recommended rapid molecular tests provide positive impact in early diagnosis and increased case detection among presumptive TB cases. Various strategies to enhance accessibility through specimen referral and optimization will be sustained.
