Even as we have reached the new millennium, we realize that “Health for all by 2000 A.D. ’’ was just a pipe dream. . killer diseases are on the prowl globally; medical breakthroughs not withstanding, the price being paid for global emergencies of tuberculosis, malaria and Aids is very heavy. Diseases among women have major implications for child survival, family welfare and productivity. In spite of all the advancements and medical breakthroughs, why is it that our health control programmes have been largely unsuccessful? This paper reviews social development in the context of health, focusing especially on the problem of tuberculosis, the lessons gained from research and experience, and advocates on behalf of people oriented strategies. Some of the strategies employed have been highlighted. It is hoped that these strategies will result in the better control of tuberculosis.
