||Role of the voluntary association in fight against
tuberculosis in Korea.

The experience of the Korean National TB Association
(KNTA) in fighting TB provides some useful insights on the role
of voluntary associations. It is recommended that, similar to the
KNTA, voluntary associations in other developing countries should
cultivate intimate working relations with their respective governments.
While the KNTA invested sizable financial inputs into critical sectors
of the TB project at the governments request, the latter greatly
assisted KNTAs fund-raising effort. KNTA found that people
contributed more freely if they could see visible proof, immediately,
and on a sufficiently large scale, of their money being utilized
for their good. It is urged that voluntary associations must constantly
improve to be an example to others.
