ABSTRACT

Washington Letter  (From a Special Correspondent)May 21, 1948.

Report Stresses Progress In Medical Care  A report prepared by Dr. George W. Bachman and Dr. Lewis Meriam for the private Brookings Institution, on behalf of the Senater Subcommittee on Health of the Labor Committee, observes that the United States had made great progress in health conditions. It points out that forty years ago the United States was outclassed by leading nations, while today the health of the white population is better than that of larger western European nations. It is on a par with the small nations with the best records. Health of Negroes is less favorable because of economic and social reasons, rather than lack of medical care. The report also states that there are not enough physicians to meet demands of a compulsory health insurance system.
