The photographs from the archive of St Ultan’s Hospital show the work of the International Tuberculosis Campaign (ITC) in the 1940s and 1950s. A joint venture of UNICEF and voluntary organisations, the ITC ran testing and vaccination programmes across Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The ITC vaccinated over eight million babies and nearly 14 million people.
