Mass Resistance in India
When the International Tuberculosis Campaign and then the WHO launched their mass BCG campaigns in India in the 1950s, they were met, for a time, with fierce resistance. Some Indians objected to the use of a controversial vaccine to solve what they considered to be a social problem. They deployed scientific disagreements over BCG against the planners of the mass campaigns and stirred up considerable resistance. In south India especially, the mass campaigns were shut down temporarily. This chapter explores why the resistance was so successful as well as so short-lived.
