Peace Corps Writers 2020 Moritz Thomsen Experience Award--Eradicating Smallpox in Ethiopia

At 465 pages, Eradicating Smallpox in Ethiopia is a hefty and important book that rightfully deserves an honored place on any shelf of serious books about epidemiology and public health. The book tells the tale of the work that some 73 Peace Corps Volunteers did in the early 1970s with The World Health Organization’s (WHO) Smallpox Eradication Program (SEP), a massive project which ultimately eliminated smallpox from the world.--Barry Hillenbrand, review on Peace Corps Worldwide as published byJohn Coyne
