Abstract

In the Papua New Guinea Highlands, tuberculosis has an epidemiological setting unique in the developing world. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is slowly infiltrating a susceptible, formerly isolated population. Because of this unique situation, commonly-recommended standard programmes must be rationally, sometimes radically, altered if case finding is to be epidemiologically efficient.
