Abstract

Faced with the immensity of the task of tackling the tuberculosis problem in this country, the Government of India decided to introduce BCG Vaccination to bring the disease within manageable limits in a measurable period of time. If the majority of the 170 million of India’s young population were protected against tuberculosis with BCG, say within 15 years’ time, its morbidity and mortality may be greatly reduced, and millions of rupees that otherwise would be spent on building and maintaining tuberculosis institutions greatly cut down.
