Histoire de la tuberculose

A Short History of Tuberculosis

Exhibition Returns

Friday 27 September 2013, 10.00am

In September and October (27 September – 09 October 2013) there will be another chance to see the Centre for Global Health Histories’ exhibition ‘Tuberculosis: A Short History’, which was originally on show during 2013’s York Festival of Ideas. The exhibition presents the history of TB’s impact and the efforts to control it from the nineteenth century up until the present day, featuring extraordinary images reproduced from the Wellcome Library image collection and the World Health Organization's photographic archives. This free, bilingual exhibition will be available in the Ron Cooke Hub exhibition space from Friday 27th September to Wednesday 9th October. An accompanying publication, featuring images from the exhibition and introductions to different episodes in the history of tuberculosis, is available to download from the Centre for Global Health Histories’ website. The exhibition and publication are sponsored by the Centre for Chronic Diseases and Disorders (C2D2).
