The Ministry of Health and Social Welfare launched the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Programme (NTLP) in July 1977. The programme is charged with the responsibility of facilitating early diagnosis, treatment and cure of as many tuberculosis and leprosy patients as possible so as to reduce the incidence and prevalence of these diseases until they are no longer a major public health problem in the country and to reduce physical disability and psycho-social suffering caused by the two diseases. Tanzania was the first country in the world to successfully combine the control of TB and Leprosy into a single programme.
