'Two Strategies for Tuberculosis Control in India 1947-65'

Niels Brimnes (Aarhus University)

This paper discusses the two strategies employed in independent India to control TB: Mass BCG-vaccination and domiciliary chemotherapy. While there was a sense of optimism regarding the potential of these strategies among officials, the reality was much more complex and many hopes dashed. In the paper I will:
- outline how these two strategies were applied and developed in
the Indian context
- discuss the limitations to the capacity of the post-colonial
state to successfully implement these TB-control strategies
- illuminate, as far as I can, the process of decision-making in relation to TB-control in independent India
It is my hope that this historical case will lead to a discussion of why specific public health programmes are adopted in certain social and political contexts.
