This chapter on tuberculosis provides a model of how epidemiology tackles an issue and the advances that have occurred as a result of sound research worldwide in the control of one of the world's scourges. It illustrates the need for proper diagnosis to trace the natural history and thus to be able to prevent and treat the condition. It also shows how modern genetic studies can and will be used in disease control.

Keywords:   epidemiology, tuberculosis, disease control, diagnosis, genetic studies
