Summary
"With planning and funding from the United States, Mexico embarked in the mid-1950s on a program of absolutely eradicating malaria, a persistent health problem in many areas of the country. In Cold War, Deadly Fevers, Marcos Cueto explores the politics of that campaign and describes the international basis of the program, its national organization in Mexico, its local implementation by health practitioners and workers, and its reception among the population. Drawing on archives in the United States, Mexico, and Switzerland, he highlights the militant Cold War rhetoric of the founders and analyzes the mixed motives of participants at all levels. He follows the story through the dwindling campaign in the late 1960s and early 1970s and raises questions relevant to today's international health campaigns against malaria, AIDS, and tuberculosis"--Jacket
