Description:This late 1960s photograph shows a feeble Nigerian refugee that was being cared for at a relief camp located near the Nigerian-Biafran war zone.
The CDC’s EIS officers worked in the Nigerian-Biafran war zone, further expanding the CDC's efforts into minimizing malnutrition, and providing famine relief. Dr. William H. Foege was the CDC’s first EIS representative, and served as such from September until November, 1967. Dr. Lyle Conrad replaced him as an EIS administrator in December, 1967, and served there until March, 1968.
