The Rockefeller Sanitary Commission’s hookworm eradication program was operated in coordination with the United States Bureau of Public Health and Marine-Hospital Service. The PHMHS provided information and advice not only on local activities, but on international conditions of hookworm infection. Although it is too much to say that the PHMHS played an active role in so-called “colonial medicine” as the UK did, it may have taken a more important part in the bio-political field than is thought.
