||Long term sociological follow up of symptom recurrence
and action taken by tuberculosis patients.

A long term follow up study of symptom recurrence
and action taking of TB patients of urban clinics in metropolitan
cities may be of limited value. But such follow up studies based
on a PHC, which is an important rural diagnostic and treatment unit
in the TB programmes will be of a great value, because the center
is responsible for comprehensive preventive and curative services
to the community through family and household units. It is, therefore,
important to know whether a TB patient, diagnosed and put on treatment
by the centre, experiences recurrence of the symptom, for which
he has sought relief at the centre and if so whether he goes in
search of relief elsewhere.
