La Grande Guerre et la lutte antituberculeuse en France

Abstract : The First World War represented a major turning point in the fight against tuberculosis in France. Before the war, efforts to tackle that social disease had been minimal. But by late 1915, a military and civil system of organisation was being put in place to reduce the crucial risk of contamination represented by the presence of tuberculosis carriers in the army. This article looks at that organisation and shows – in contrast to the conventional historiography, which gives the Rockefeller Mission a decisive role – that it connected several levels of intervention : ministerial collaboration, treatment and funding.
