Excerpt from Denmark: Its Medical Organization Hygiene and Demography; Presented to the Seventh International Congress of Hygiene and Demography, London 1891

The above lines embody the idea which gave rise to the publication of this work. Denmark presented a series of disconnected articles to the Second International Congress of Hygiene held at Brussels in 1876. These articles were in French and were published at the expense of the State and the Copenhagen Municipality. During the 15 years there has been a marked sanitary progress in this country; it seemed therefore not unreasonable to suppose that a descrip tion of the present state of hygiene and of matters relating to the demography of Denmark (demography being of latter years included in Congresses for Hygiene) might be of interest also to other nations. Accordingly, a number of medical and other professional men agreed to produce such a work, to be presented to the Seventh International Congress of Hygiene and Demography. The form chosen in preference to the former unconnected articles, is a collective and systematically arranged survey of the hygiene and demo graphy of the country, preceded by a short description of the medical organization, which is in so many ways connected with the two former subjects. The Danish Government most willingly undertook all expenses connected with the translation, printing, die. The language of the country in which the Congress assembles on this occasion, is, for obvious reasons, now employed.
