International Health


    THE report on the Health Organisation of the League of Nations adopted by the last Assembly noted the success which international co-operation can achieve in technical matters. Co operation in health matters is indeed relatively easy: there are few, if any, vested interests comparable with those which hinder progress in the economic or political fields. Health administrators, in recognising the essential similarity of health problems in different countries and in different areas, and the value to all of the experience of particular administrations, have come to recognise also the responsibility of co-operation and of placing at the disposal of all the special information and experience which some have gained.
