  • Description

    In the course of a public health campaign carried out jointly by the French Army and the Health Service of the city of Oran, Algeria, some 1,600 people at Ain-Beida in Oran district were recently vaccinated against smallpox.

    Mobile army units quickly erected field-hospital tents and set up equipment of deal with queues of women or children waiting to be vaccinated. Some of the women were heavily veiled according to Moslem custom, and the youngsters seemed suspicious of the "operation". But tears were soon dried as friendly nurses comforted the little ones.

    This is the latest measure in France's drive to raise the general standard of health in Algeria.
