Twelve Years' Experience of Compulsory Notification of Tuberculosis in South Australia. Pamphlet.

Adelaide: R. E. E. Rogers Government Printer, 1913. Wraps. A paper concerning the outcome of mandatory reporting of tuberculosis in South Australia, which in 1898 was the first jurisdiction in the world to make tuberculosis a disease required by law to be reported to the government. Read before the International Congress on Hygiene and Demography in Washington DC.

Dr. Smith, as early as 1910, stated that because infectious diseases are preventable, that this was sufficient cause for any legislature to require reporting and quarantining of individuals. In this paper Smith notes the practical problems which arose, from the apathy of local health boards to the lack of epidemiological data.
