Abstract

The Anti-plague system experienced a dramatic expansion in Soviet times. From the dozen facilities created in the Russian Empire, it grew during the Soviet period to include over 100 facilities engaged in public health activities as well as BW-related work. This article describes how this highly responsive public health system, created to respond to natural outbreaks of dangerous diseases, became a critical adjunct to the Soviet BW program.
