Description

Dr. David Thompson was an epidemiologist in the Smallpox Eradication Program (SEP) in West Africa. He recounts experiences in Eastern Nigeria and Liberia. Following his service in SEP he returned to Africa to start a primary health care program in Chad. That program became self-sustaining and gradually the governance was turned over to the village.
