||The encouragement of voluntary tuberculosis societies
in undeveloped countries.
||BULL IUAT 1964, 34-35, 377-379.
The author addresses some typical questions of
overseas societies concerning the various roles and activities and
the factors to be considered in constituting a voluntary organisation.
It is concluded that while it is impossible to foresee every combination
of circumstances which may surround the birth of a voluntary TB
association, personal enthusiasm, patience, and mental flexibility
can overcome every obstacle. In creating a voluntary society, the
first step to educate the community as a whole, is being taken.
Such a voluntary association can be thought of as a working model
which reflects the state of general enlightenment. For this slow
process of education, there is no substitute. No hygiene or medical
services will be really effective unless the will-power and interest
of a significant number of ordinary people are aroused.
