oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Towards the rout of tuberculosis in Rhodesia

Part I - The Tally the Task and the Team: Recent notification figures, taken with other factors, indicate that there has been a true reduction in the overall incidence rate of tuberculosis cases coming for treatment since 1959. This reduction may, however, be due to the marked fall in the central areas and may not affect the less developed outlying parts. Our overall policy is to vaccinate as widely as possible against tuberculosis and to discover as many cases as we can and give them prolonged continuous drug treatment. The medical personnel particularly involved in tuberculosis work include a staff of tuberculosis officers on the curative side and the medical officers of health on the preventive side.
