Es posible erradicar la tuberculosis?
My thoughts on communicable disease eradication can be summarized in six points:1) Man has never thus far eradicted any communicable disease2) Man will never be free of all communicable disease (evolution of new etiological agentes pathogenic to man; some, if not most, current cummunicable diseases not eradicable)3) There are some communicable diseases, however, which would appear from current knowledge and actual field experience to be eradicable. Examples: smallpox (almost certainly); tuberculosis, syphilis, typhoid fever, cholera (probably); malaria (perhaps)4) It is not possible to state that any of these diseases will be eradicated5) Neither is it in accordance with current knowledge and trends to say it is impossible to eradicate these diseases6) The only way to determine whether or not eradication is possible is to select a few of the communicable diseases giving greatest promise of being eradicable, assume they can be eradicated, and conduct a serious, carefully planned global effort to eradicate them. This is now being done globally against malaria and smallpox. It is not too early to begin making some plans for the global eradication of tuberculosis(AU)
