Unhooking the Hookworm, a Successful Public Health Awareness Video from 1920

Image
This educational drama was created by the International Health Board (later the International Health Division of the Rockefeller Foundation) in order to teach Southern rural communities in the United States about hookworm. Shown at fairs and other public events, "Unhooking the Hookworm" provides an early example of the innovative use of film to educate communities about public health issues.
