Diphtheria

Otherwise called the 'Strangling Angel of Children', diphtheria was for long a dreaded yet common childhood illness. In fact, until a few centuries back in New England, it was solely responsible for 80pct of the deaths of children under 10 years. Eventhough vaccines have been developed, poor public health measures have caused the re-emergence of the disease.

For more details, our support group on diphtheria is the place to be.
