 Smallpox and its eradication was published by WHO in 1988 (ISBN: 92 4 156110 6). It contains illustrative material both from WHO and from other published sources, as indicated. In the case of the latter, the copyright holders granted WHO permission to reproduce their material in this book.

Stocks of Smallpox and its eradication were exhausted some years ago and the book is now out of print. In view of current concern about the threat of smallpox, WHO has decided with some urgency to make the book available on the World Wide Web. WHO requests the understanding of the copyright holders of the illustrations from other published sources and invites those who object to their material being made available in this way to contact us at pubrights@who.int.
