Excerpt
PREFACE This year was an eventful and successful one for the Division of Control of Tropical Diseases. It ended with a major initiative that will have significant consequences in the future towards improving the quality of life for one fifth of the planet inhabitants in the next millennium. The signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with SmithKline Beecham, plc paves the way for global elimination of lymphatic filariasis, an ancient disease which has plagued the population in 73 countries around the world. This initiative to eliminate the disease will contribute to accelerated economic growth, improvement of living standards and better education for 1.1 billion people who live in countries where the disease is endemic. The well-recognised and appreciated work of the Division has been made possible by the extraordinary commitment and dedication of staff members for which I am indebted. A number of new staff have joined the Division this year, bringing a high degree of enthusiasm and creative input. The Division also said farewell to a few individuals who had dedicated a great portion of their lives to help our effort. It is with much sadness that I recall the deaths of Dr Kenneth Mott, chief of SIP and Dr Robert Kouznetsov of the malaria programme. Dr Mott, who headed WHO schistosomiasis activities for the past 14 years, died on 14 June 1997 at the age of 58 after a long illness that he faced with courage and fortitude until the end. His contributions to the development of tropical disease control methods are immense. Dr Kouznetsov, a long-term highly respected malaria expert of the Division, was working on the problem of resurgence of malaria in the Newly Independent States and other countries in Europe. Sadly, on 23 June 1997, Dr Kouznetsov passed away while on duty travel in Tajikistan where he was assisting the national authorities to control the resurgence of malaria in the country. He was 60 years of age.
