Tuberculosis - in the past and the present

About forty years back Tuberculosis was an abominable and incurable disease for the common people. Even movie pictures showed that newer drugs were discovered in a foreign country that cured the heroine’s tuberculosis! Sanatorium treatment was advocated then. The children were warned about this ‘jailed treatment’ and not to have contact with tuberculosis affected people!

Nowadays tuberculosis treatment is available at door step. Sanatoria are vacant, or have been converted into other medical facilities: patients continue to do their jobs while taking anti-tuberculosis medicines. The new born child is also assured of its right to have all the immunizations – by giving it first BCG vaccine against Tuberculosis!

Tuberculosis treatment and its control are wonders among the treatment of diseases.
