Abstract:

Significant progress has been made in combatting such diseases as malaria, brucellosis, rabies, poliomyelitis, diphteria, whooping cough, tuberculosis, and measles. This has been accomplished by prophylactic measures, improved laboratory diagnosis, systematic vaccination, and a network of sanitary-epidemiological stations. Medical facilities in the Estonian SSR are among the best in the Soviet Union.
