    This has been planned as a special issue to commemorate “TB Control at the Millennium.” We wanted to take the occasion to note what has been accomplished in TB control over the years, and to look forward to the challenges of the future. Our focus is mainly on progress made in this country, since that is our charge and our responsibility, but one cannot talk about TB control without talking about the important work of researchers and workers in other countries, and therefore we have included articles about international efforts as well.

    In this issue you will find information about the history of the interaction between mankind and Mycobacterium tuberculosis; the many accomplishments of our partners in TB contol; the past and present activities of the Division of TB Elimination (DTBE); a timeline of some of the highlights of TB control over the past century; educational materials available from DTBE; and photos of historical people, places, events, and memorabilia that we believe you will find interesting.

    Called also: "Century of notable events in TB control", "Notable events in TB control", and "TB control at the millennium"/
