Tuberculosis (TB) is a potentially fatal contagious disease that can affect almost any part of the body. Genital tuberculosis remains a major health problem in many developing countries, and responsible for a significant proportion of females presenting with infertility. A greater awareness of causes, clinical features and improved diagnostic methods are more helpful to identify genital tuberculosis at earliest. The purpose of the study was to assess the effectiveness of structured teaching programme on genital tuberculosis among adolescent girls. An evaluative approach was adopted. Using a simple random sampling technique 60 adolescent girls who meet the sampling criteria was selected for the study. Study findings revealed that 78.33 % of the girls not received health information regarding genital tuberculosis. The pre-test knowledge score was 42.67% (12.61±2.26) and post test knowledge score was 82.44% (24.25±1.348) showing an effectiveness of 39.77% (11.64±2.47). Significance of difference between pre-test and post-test score was found highly significant (t=36.49, p<0> no association between pre-test knowledge score and demographic variables. The findings of the study revealed that the knowledge has significantly improved after the structured teaching programme.
Conclusion: It is concluded that STP is highly effective in improving the knowledge of the adolescent girls regarding genital tuberculosis.
