Abstract
Tuberculosis is an ancient disease. On March 24, 1882, Robert Koch announced the discovery of tubercle bacillus. He would have least expected that the world would be fighting hard to control TB, an easily curable disease, even after 125 years. Tuberculosis is a disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal. A pre experimental study, therefore, was undertaken to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on knowledge regarding tuberculosis and its management among college students at selected colleges, Chennai. 30 samples were selected using convenient random sampling technique. In order to assess the level of knowledge regarding tuberculosis and its management, a structured questionnaire was used. The study concluded that structured teaching programme improves the level of knowledge regarding tuberculosis and its management among the college students.The difference was found to be statistically significant at p<0.001 level which indicates the effectiveness of structured teaching programme in improving the level of knowledge.
