Synopsis: The Chernobyl Sasakawa Health and Medical Cooperation Project completed its 5-year health screening project at the end of April 1996, and a total of about 160,000 children were examined in the project at the five diagnostic centers located around Chernobyl in Belarus, Russian Federation, and Ukraine. The results of the health screening have been separately published every year since 1992 by the respective centers on the basis of their presentation at the Chernobyl Sasakawa Medical Cooperation Symposium. However, this volume presents the results of the 5-year health screening at all five centers from the viewpoints of dosimetry, thyroid diseases, and haematological abnormalities Although originally started in May 1991 as a humanitarian aid project in response to the request of the government of the former Soviet Union, the project became a collaborative work shared by Belarus, the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Japan. The health screening was made uniform in all five centers on the basis of common protocol and standardized procedures, which resulted in data of relatively high comparability.

Review: 1998 ...In addition to a synthesis and overview, the book provides one of the finest sources of valid epidemiological data on the health of children affected by this unprecedented disaster...The book is a classic in environmental epidemiology, in pediatric hematology, and pediatric thyroid disease. The book is recommended for all environmental epidemiologists, for health physicists, and for pediatricians concerned with environmental factors in growth and development. No scientist interested in the health impact of Chernobyl can afford not to have it on his (her) desk. -- J.R. Goldsmith, Public Health Review
