During the 1940s, epidemics of malaria, relapsing fever, and cholera killed more people in Egypt than all the wars the nation has fought in the 20th century. Because of emerging nationalism, the epidemics were viewed for the first time as not only a public health crisis but also a political problem that called for a political solution. This study explores the combination of forces that put an end to the epidemics and placed public health at the top of the national political agenda. Annotation c.
