Since 1967, the demands of smallpox eradication have properly preempted those of measles control. However, with the rapid elimination of smallpox from all but one of the 19 countries, the challenge of measles control is attracting increasing interest. This paper presents the pertinent epidemiological features of West African measles and describes theoretical studies of, and practical attempts to achieve, measles control.
