Abstract

The ominous resurgence of tuberculosis after many years of containment necessitates a review of the various factors responsible. An intense collaborative effort is needed to avoid potentially catastrophic consequences of the new epidemic. To provide a basis for health education recommendations, the factors contributing to the resurgence of tuberculosis, the nature of the current epidemic, and past health education efforts are reviewed. Further, an expanded Health Belief Model is offered as a foundation to guide educational campaigns.
