This historic 1967 photograph depicted the former Carter Center’s Global 2000, Director of Operations, the late Andrew Agle, as he vaccinated Beaunie Challenor, MD, in the country of Togo. Mr. Agle was a stalwart proponent of improving the health and well-being of the world’s children, and the improvement of child survival rates. He joined John Snow, Inc. (JSI), as the Country Director of Basic Support for Institutionalizing Child Survival (Basics II) in Nigeria. This picture was taken, just prior to the kick-off of the Global Smallpox Eradication Program, whereupon, the world's public health organizations – led by the United States and the then-Soviet Union – came together to join in the fight to eradicate smallpox from the world.
