The Centre has decided to expand the availability of Bedaquiline, a drug used for treatment of drug-resistant tuberculosis, across the country. The states are being prepared to monitor the treatment of patients with Bedaquiline containing regimen.

Under the revised National TB Control Programme (RNTCP) in India, the drug is currently available in five cities - Ahmedabad, Delhi, Chennai, Mumbai and Guwahati. As the drug has not undergone the phase-III trials, and has been documented to have serious adverse drug reactions, the programme initiated its use in a limited number of centres.
