Medical Officer of Health reports

The reports were produced each year by the Medical Officer of Health (MOH) of a district and set out the work done by his public health and sanitary officers. They provided vital data on birth and death rates, infant mortality, incidence of infectious and other diseases, and a general statement on the health of the population. The reports also allowed the authors to express the diversity of their local communities and their own personal interests so sometimes contained unexpected and quirky topics.
