||Legislation and tuberculosis.
||All India Conference on Tuberculosis, 2nd, New Delhi,
India, 20-23 Nov 1939 p. 216-223.
This was a presentation made to the President and
Chair of the TB Workers' Conference in British India, 1939. The
presenter traced the history of the organized control of TB in many
countries with reference to State legislation and, described the
variations in laws passed and their impact on different aspects
of the anti-TB efforts. The latter part of the presentation was
focussed on legislation and TB in India. Defects in certain existing
provincial laws were explained as also the negative impact of some
of them on the patient and his/her family. It was considered premature
to consider any comprehensive and useful TB legislation in India
at the time before correcting existing provincial laws and recommendations
were made to enforce laws concerning certain factors which promoted
the spread of TB.
