Abstract
Greenland is part of the Kingdom of Denmark and it is the world's largest island. An ice cap covers 85% of its territory. The population is about 57,000 inhabitants, with 14,000 living in the capital Nuuk, and 10,000 in villages and other small settlements. There are pronounced regional variations in lifestyle and living conditions. The Greenland Home Rule Government assumed responsibility, for health care on 1 January 1992. Greenland's territory is divided into 16 health care districts. Queen Ingrid's Hospital in Nuuk is the national hospital and has 156 beds and numerous specialist physicians associated with it. Each health district has a health care centre with one or more physicians, nurses and other health care personnel appropriate for the number of people living in the district. Each district health centre is responsible for primary health care in towns, villages and other small settlements, and the health centres treat all common illnesses. The health centres handle uncomplicated births, minor surgery, common treatment in internal medicine and community mental health services. The centres have a number of inpatient beds proportional to the number of people in the health district. People with more complicated illnesses are referred to Queen Ingrid's Hospital in Nuuk or to specialised treatment in Denmark.

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: Tuberculosis is still a disease to be taken seriously in Greenland. After a ten-year period in oblivion, the incidence of tuberculosis has been shown to be rising during the nineties. A central tuberculosis-group was constituted in 1997 in order to monitor and control the situation. A centrally placed TB nurse was established to support and supervise local health authorities. STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of registered incidents of tuberculosis from all health districts from 1997 until 2002. Review of reports from the TB nurse. METHODS: Quality assessment of treatment and subsequent control was systematically conducted by the TB nurse. RESULTS: Microepidemics were observed in various health districts. The TB nurse was a positive assistance in case finding, tracking sources of infection, identifying disease carriers, guidance and instruction of local health care workers. Knowledge of TB and continuity amongst health care workers along with a fragile manning situation are shown to be important determining factors in the effort to control TB. With a former high prevalence of TB hidden pools may still be likely to turn up. CONCLUSION: Health care workers still need to focus on tuberculosis in order to diagnose individual incidents, to secure proper treatment according to guidelines, to track sources of infection, to identify disease carriers, and to prevent further spreading into the community. The interventions of the TB nurse are an efficient tool to control microepidemics at a local level in seeing that proper registration, treatment and specific prophylactic interventions are being carried out.
