Abstract

99DOTS is a cellphone-based strategy for monitoring tuberculosis medication adherence. In a cohort of 650 Indian tuberculosis patients, we compared 99DOTS' adherence record against results of urine isoniazid tests collected during unannounced home visits. 99DOTS had suboptimal accuracy for measuring adherence, partly due to poor patient engagement with 99DOTS.
