This study offers a survey of the problem of preventable infant mortality, with special reference to conditions in France, comparing them with the situation in other countries. The significance of the many factors which enter into consideration is evaluated. The many measures designed to alleviate these conditions are described, together with the various social agencies working toward this end. While the author appreciates the usefulness of these activities, yet she points out that their efficacy is greatly hampered by lack of coordination of the various departments, and implies that until such efforts are centralized, satisfactory progress will not be attained.
