Excerpt
The author, who was in charge of the smallpox eradication campaign, recalls how remarkable individuals decided to work together for a common purpose, and in doing so achieved infinitely more than the official hostilities of superpowers. A critical but little-appreciated factor in the achievement of smallpox eradication was a remarkable collaboration between WHO, the USA and the USSR beginning in 1966 and extending through the certification of eradication in 1980. Although many years during this period were especially tense ones in East-West relationships, professionals from the two countries worked amicably together within a WHO framework to galvanize the smallpox eradication campaign and to bring it to a successful conclusion little more than 10 years after its inception. There are many chapters to the story, but perhaps the following highlights are the ones most worth recounting.
