The writer has been responsible for the treatment and control of tuberculosis in the African community of Greater Salisbury since September, 1974. During that time measures were taken to co-ordinate the treatment and control of the disease to make them more effective. This paper is a review of the years 1975-77 inclusive, whose object is to consider the effects of planning and reorganisation on the incidence and treatment of tuberculosis, especially the pulmonary form of, the disease, in an urban situation in a developing country. It is emphasised that all changes including the development of services and initiation of research projects were carried out without any increase in funds, staff or other resources - a most important consideration for any developing country.
