During the last few years, treatment with the new antimicrobial drugs, streptomycin, P.A.S. and isoniazid, has become
the basic treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis. The death rate from tuberculosis in Canada in 1953 was one-third the death rate in 1948; 1948, 37-3/100,000 population; 1953- 12-3/100,000 population.
Outstanding among the factors contributing to this striking decline is the fact that since 1948 the federal government has provided over $3,500,000 under the national health grants program for the free treatment of tuberculosis by these new drugs.
