Free Photo: Kid with Smallpox Disease

Description: 1975 picture of a small child who’d been stricken with smallpox was taken by Dr. Stan Foster, EIS, Officer, Class of 1962, and a part of the worldwide Global Smallpox Eradication Campaign of the late 1960s, early 1970s.

In 1968, the world’s public health organizations – led by the United States and the then-Soviet Union – came together to join in the fight to eradicate smallpox from the world. Some of the key foot soldiers of this battle included CDC’s cadre of EIS officers and alumni, among them Stan Foster and Bill Foege, graduates of the EIS class of ’62, as well as Stan Music, EIS ’71, and Donald Hopkins, a former deputy director of CDC who was made an honorary EIS officer in 1985. Smallpox is a serious, contagious, and sometimes fatal infectious disease. There is no specific treatment for smallpox disease, and the only prevention is vaccination. The name smallpox is derived from the Latin word for “spotted” and refers to the raised bumps that appear on the face and body of an infected person.

This image was created in 1975 and provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Dr. Stan Foster. Suggest a better description.
