After the success of the American Indian trial BCG began to make its way around the globe. First the International Tuberculosis Campaign and then the World Health Organization and UNICEF introduced it to the developing world. Despite the American Indian trial, there was considerable skepticism regarding its general efficacy. Even so, there was, many thought, no alternative and no harm in trying. Thus, a controversial vaccine began a journey around the world that would eventually make it history’s most used vaccine.
