This report is based on a study of the state institutions, infant and maternal mortality, county nurses, state departments dealing with health, legislative reference library, social security health aids, and medical and dental care of the indigent. It is noted that there has been a continuous reduction of mortality, until Wisconsin has one of the most favorable rankings of any state in the Union or of any important nation. Recommendations are divided into two parts—those dealing with administrative changes and those requiring new legislation. The report is a compact survey of public health and institutional resources in Wisconsin and an outline of recommendations that undoubtedly forecast future developments with considerable accuracy.
