  1. Is tuberculosis taken seriously in the United Kingdom ?

    Article - En anglais

    Tuberculosis has been the subject of much concern in recent years.

    Notifications have increased, inadequacies in surveillance revealed, and policies for BCG immunisation and screening of immigrants questioned.

    Until recently the disease was given low priority in the United Kingdom.

    There is no overall strategic framework for tackling tuberculosis, and fears have been expressed about the future of local tuberculosis control programmes in the new market economy of the NHS.

    An action plan for tuberculosis within the context of a national programme is urgently required.

    Only then will a major impact on the incidence of the disease be seen.
