Tuberculosis prevention in Finnmark 1900-1960

, : Tuberculosis prevention in Finnmark 1900-1960. Tidsskrift for den Norske Laegeforening 128(24): 2864-2867

The campaign against tuberculosis in Finnmark in the first half of the 20th century was defined as a national responsibility. The Norwegian state and voluntary associations, the Norwegian Association against Tuberculosis prominent among them, initiated special measures against the disease in this multicultural county. It was considered important to increase the capacity for isolation of patients, but efforts to enhance the populations' cultural and social standards, particularly among the Sámi, were also prioritized. In the decades between wars, a stronger emphasis was placed on strict epidemiological measures. However, cultural concerns surfaced anew in a new medical and political context in the preventive work from 1952, in connection with implementation of mass miniature X-ray screenings in Finnmark.
