Abstract

Tuberculosis is widely prevalent in the world. From a global point of view the economically underdeveloped countries in the world, namely, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the East Asian countries, are the countries in which tuberculosis is a major public health problem and unless the disease is brought under control in these areas, where it is more or less endemic, total victory over it is not possible.
