The Importance of Public Health for Twenty-First-Century Health Care: Lessons From Tuberculosis
Bovbjerg, Randall R.
Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law. 1994 Spring; 19(1): 155-163.

Action has been hampered by failures in public health infrastructure and legal-philosophical support for government intervention. Josephine Gittler's accompanying article usefully suggests rebuilding public-health agencies and adapting traditional authority and controls from the age of epidemics to take account of today's circumstances and sensibilities.
