    Article - En anglais


    New York City began America's first campaign to control tuberculosis in 1893, and the disease declined until the 1970s.

    Throughout the 20th century, New York relied on three control strategies: screening, supervised therapy, and detention of noncompliant persons.

    Officials consistently identified the persistent foci of tuberculosis to be minorities and the poor, and they concentrated efforts among these populations.

    Recently, however, in the setting of rising human immunodeficiency virus infection and homelessness, tuberculosis-including multidrug-resistant strains-had returned to New York with a vengeance.
