Recent trends in the treatment of tuberculosis have not been centred on efficacy of certain anti tuberculosis drugs, their toxicity, and similar but on overall aim of treatment and how that aim could be achieved more efficiently. Emphasis, therefore, has been on (i) the essential accompaniments of and ii) how to build up a treatment organisation which can deliver optimal chemotherapy effectively to a majority of patients in a way which is practical and within available financial resources and which is acceptable to a majority of patients. These recent trends have tended to take the spot light away from drugs and the clinician towards patients of tuberculosis and the public health tuberculosis specialist.
