Abstract

In the early 1950’s Puerto Rico began a 14 year program to eliminate schistosomiasis from the island. The Division of Community Education (DIVEDCO) was created to bring together rising authors, artists, composers, and filmmakers on the island to produce a series of materials– pamphlets, films, and posters– that educated the people about issues such as health, public safety, democracy, literacy, and civic participation. One such pamphlet published was Bilharzia that in 24 brief pages outlines the history, occurrence, reservoir, susceptibility, treatment, and control measures of schistosomiasis on the island.
