This November 29, 1954 15 fr airmail stamp (Sc #C33) of Cameroon commemorates the 75th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Eugene Jamot (1879-1937). Dr. Jamot and a medical clinic, including microscopes, are flanked by 2 tsetse flies on the stamp.

From wikipedia, "Jamot discovered that the tsetse fly was the vector of the trypanosomes causing the disorder. By sending public health intervention teams in villages, Jamot's team considerably reduced the incidence of trypanosomiasis, and thus its transmission, in Cameroon and hence the disease."
