Abstract

We describe how Israel effected new tuberculosis programs and policies beginning in the early 1990s. We explain how the epidemiology of the disease, particular events, and a small number of people influenced the creation of new policy. We believe that this story may be useful to other program managers and policymakers interested in changing course.
