For his first WHO assignment in 1967, Erling Mandelmann spent 14 days photographing health services in Sweden. He accompanied a group of local policemen who, every year, invited disabled children from the Strömbro Centre in Gävle on an outing. The photo report Grande sortie à Furuvik, accompanied by a text written by Mr Mandelmann, was published in 1968.
