Abstract

Public Health Congress  The third Brazilian Congress of Hygiene will be opened at São Paulo, September 28. Preparations are so far advanced that the meeting will surely be as successful as those held at Rio de Janeiro and Bello Horizonte. The following subjects have been suggested for discussion by different agencies which will be represented at the congress; such as the national department of public health, the Rockefeller Foundation, local health departments, Oswaldo Cruz Institute, and the Brazilian Public Health Society: epidemiologic rôle of flies; water purification; home prevention of malaria; worm infestation index; epidemiology and prophylaxis of malaria in Brazil; permanent organization of local health departments; epidemiology and prophylaxis of typhoid fever; prevention of leprosy; effect of sanitary works on public health; work accomplished in Brazil in protecting milk supplies; infant hygiene.
