In 1934, Dr. Sawyer made another trip to Brazil to inspect yellow fever control activities, including an investigation of a puzzling outbreak of the disease in a rural region. The Yellow Fever Service was run collaboratively by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Brazilian government. Local public health officials were key personnel in this program.
