ABSTRACT
An interview with executive vice president of the Sabin Vaccine Institute, Ciro de Quadros, is presented. He discusses how he became interested in immunization while involved with a smallpox programme in Brazil in 1969, what disease surveillance and containment is and how he helped to develop this approach in Brazil, and what motivated him to work in remote areas that are struggling to fill physicians’ posts, such as Pará state in Brazil.
