Mr. President, Dr. Kagan, members of the Society, and guests: I must begin by recognizing the signal honour conferred on me and on the organization to which I belong by your invitation to present the annual Craig Lecture. To say that I am most appreciative is a gross understatement.

It was clear that if I accepted, my subject had to concern the parasitic diseases. The many problems relative to malaria had been covered in this lecture several years ago by Clay Huff, in his usual admirable fashion, leaving me free to consider those parasitic diseases that are the direct responsibility of my section of the World Health Organization. With additional reflection came the realization that this platform would provide a unique opportunity to examine a major concern of ours, as well as one approach to its solution, before a most knowledgeable forum. Thus, let me begin with the warning that I am here to seek your responses and to solicit your assistance.
