Background-The guidelines on control and prevention of tuberculosis in the United Kingdom have been reviewed and updated.
Methods-A subcommittee was appointed by the Joint Tuberculosis Committee (JTC).
Each member of this group drafted one or more sections of the guidelines, and drafts were made available to all members of the group.
In the course of several meetings drafts were altered and incorporated into a final text.
The guidelines were approved by the full JTC and by the Standards of Care Committee of the British Thoracic Society.
In revising the guidelines the authors took account of new published evidence and recent concerns about drug resistance and possible effects of HIV on tuberculosis.
