The original intention of this thesis was to furnish an account of anti-tuberculosis measures in a small tropical community, to outline the problems ecnountered in such work and to describe the methods employed in overcoming them. Before doing this it was considered advisable to make a comparative study of the problems of other tropical countries. This involved an extensive search through numerous medical journals published in all parts of the world. The first part of this thesis therefore has been devoted to selecting, as far as possible, the more important contributions regarding tubeculosis amongst coloured peoples. Further, in certain sections, especially that on pathology, these articles have been set out in considerable detail in the hope that, ultimately, the information contained therein will be of value to those who have to wage a singla handed warfare against this disease.
