Author: Foster, Stanley O.
Abstract: In 1966, Dr. Foster was invited to join the CDCs new Smallpox Eradication Program. His family spent 4 years in Nigeria (1966-1970) and 4 years in Bangladesh (1972-1976) working with national health workers to eradicate smallpox. In 1977, he spent three months living with nomads in Somalia (the last smallpox epidemic country in the world.) In 1975 Dr. Foster confirmed and treated Rahima Banu, who was the last natural occurring case of severe smallpox (Variola Major) in the world.
