ABSTRACT

Civil Works Health Projects  A summary of the work accomplished on health projects sponsored by the U. S. Public Health Service as a part of the Civil Works Administration during the winter 1933-1934 appeared in Public Health Reports, August 17. The four projects recommended were a malaria control drainage program in the fourteen states in which malaria has been most prevalent, construction of sanitary facilities in small towns and unsewered outskirts of large cities, surveys to determine the extent of endemic typhus fever in rodents in important seaports, and the sealing of abandoned coal mines to reduce the acid wastes being discharged into streams used for water supplies. Health officers of the states were made agents of the federal health service for technical supervision. Amounts set aside for labor totaled approximately $4,500,000 for malaria control, $5,000,000 for community sanitation, $1,000,000 for typhus fever surveys and $1,500,000 for sealing coal mines.
