The purpose of the paper was to analyse the problem
of relief for poor TB patients who were getting treatment from the
out-patient department of the NDTC. For the convenience of the study,
the problems of relief in TB were categorised into 3 groups based
on the stage at which they arose. The categories of patients and
their families being helped were listed. The problems encountered
by patients in the three categories are explained in detail, the
relief measures provided are presented and suggestions are offered
to alleviate the above problems.
