Direct quote: “I’ve been working in the area of preventing socially significant diseases already for over ten years and in that time there have been many projects, various and interesting; I worked with students, volunteers, the military, drug addicted people, and others in all kinds of places – from mobile units to rock clubs, factories, and military bases. I am absolutely sure that some problems must be solved by ‘the whole world’: you can’t walk on by and say that something doesn’t affect me, that doesn’t work!”.
