The Delaware County Tuberculosis Association was organized in 1919 and was incorporated in 1922 for the purpose of identification, treatment and control of tuberculosis in this community. The Delaware County Tuberculosis Association is different from other health agencies due to the nature of the disease with which we work. It has always been, is now, and will continue to be the purpose of the Tuberculosis Association to assist in the finding of the infected, treating and following up on those afflicted with active disease, as well as educating the public about the problems involved. Care is rendered by the Tuberculosis Association with-out regard to race, color, creed, sex, age, national origin economic status. Services are rendered to those afflicted with active disease at no cost and to those infected at minimal cost regardless of their ability or willingness to pay as a means to protect our community as a whole from tuberculosis.
