The National Health Campaign


    LAST week, November 1-6, marked the beginning of the second month of the National Health Campaign, which was recently inaugurated by the Prime Minister, and this period has been devoted to the general aspects of the campaign and has aroused considerable public interest. During November and December special emphasis is being laid on the services available for mothers and infants, while in January next the child at a later stage, the school age, will be considered, together with the value of co-operation between home and school. The medium of the campaign varies; numerous posters and leaflets have been issued, public meetings and films have been arranged, and the support of the Press and of the wireless is expected.
