Abstract : Great achievements have been made in controlling such diseases as malaria, exanthemous, and recurrent typhus, dysentery, typhoid fever, whooping cough, and many childhood diseases such as diphtheria, scarlet fever, and measles. The success is attributed to a system of sanitary-epidemiological stations, prophylactic measures, public education in medical and hygienic matters, and improved medical care. (Author)
