This report is a digest of some of the facts learned and impressions gained in the course of a recent visit to the Soviet Union. The visit was carried out in February and March, 1956, by us. It was sponsored by the Public Health Service of the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, with the approval of the Department of State.
