1998 Award in Honor of Fred L. Soper (1893–1976) for Publications in the Field of Inter-American Health

This is an announcement and call for submission of nominations for the 1998 award in honor of Fred L. Soper, former Director of the Pan American Health Organization (the World Health Organization Regional Office for the Americas) from 1947 to 1958.

In addition to his service with PAHO/WHO, Dr. Soper played a major role in the fight against yellow fever and other infectious diseases in Brazil as part of his work with the Rockefeller Foundation in the 1920s and 1930s and in the control of typhus in North Africa and Italy during the Second World War. He was one of the truly major figures of the century in inter-American health.

The Award is presented annually to the author or authors of an original scientific contribution comprising new information on, or new insights into, the broad field of public health, with special relevance to Latin American or the Caribbean or both.
