This tells the heroic story of how a handful of people, none of them TB experts, found the cure for the greatest infectious killer of all time.


(In the USA, The Forgotten Plague)
TUBERCULOSIS is the greatest infectious killer in history. In this century and the previous one, it was responsible for an estimated thousand million deaths. The discovery of the cure changed history - yet, incredibly, that story has never previously been told.
Half way through the twentieth century, few people world-wide, whether doctors or the ordinary man or woman, believed that such a cure would ever be possible. Only a tiny band of unlikely heroes, scattered in different countries, believed they could find it. Not one of them was a tuberculosis expert. Half of them were not even medically qualified. This is their story.

For Frank Ryan, who for many years travelled world-wide gathering together the intimate details of their lives, the greatest shock was awaiting him in New York, when he discovered that in a deadly alliance with AIDS, tuberculosis was once again threatening both the developed and developing world.  
Sadly, the UK, and London in particular, now finds itself in a similar position to that of the US and New York in 1990, making this book increasingly relevant to our society today.
