Welcome to National Programme for Tuberculosis Control & Chest Diseases

National Programme for Tuberculosis Control & Chest Diseases (NPTCCD) is the central organization of the Ministry of Health responsible for controlling and preventing tuberculosis (TB) & other respiratory diseases throughout Sri Lanka. Fortunately, Sri Lanka is having a moderate burden of TB  although the burden of other respiratory diseases is rising. We have a strong TB and chest diseases control program, but there are areas we have to further strengthen. However, TB & respiratory diseases remain as a serious Public Health problem and poses a continuing threat to the health and social life of the people.In this context, everyone in the society has a role to play to minimize chest disease burden. NPTCCD aims to enhance the awareness on chest diseases and its health impacts to the individual, family, society and to the nation.        Read more…..
