Tuberculosis (TB) is a global public health problem in Nigeria, only 22 countries account for
80% of the TB burden in the world and Nigeria with estimated incidence of 311 cases per
100,000 populations occupies the fifth position among the twenty-two high TB burden countries.
The country uses the World Health Organization recommended directly observed treatment short

assessments of the performance of the programme; poor treatment outcome implies a failing
control program. Adherence of the patients on the long duration of treatment is influenced by the
patient, the programme and the service providers. In plateau state, TB control using the DOTS
strategy started in 2001, the cured and default rates had remained below and above the expected
targets set by the National control programme respectively. There is lack of understanding of the
factors that determine the outcome of treatment in the state; furthermore, no study had been done

This study explored the factors that affect the outcome of treatment to help the control program
