Excerpt from Virginia's Health: Progress and Prospect, Annual Report of the Health Commissioner to the Governor of Virginia for the Year Ending September 30, 1914

Public health is a purchasable commodity. It can be bought as surely as a public park, a government building or a sewerage system. We have only to pay the price. And if we are not able to pay for the fullest measure of protection from disease, we can purchase improvements according to a scale which is now fairly well determined. Our task, accordingly, is to see that every citizen Of Virginia gets as good protection as can be purchased for one cent and six mills.

Stated somewhat differently, our problem is this: With deaths reported in Virginia during 1913, what can we do in the reduction of this number and in the lessening of sickness with the money available? If per cent. Of all these deaths were due to preventable diseases, how much can we lower this percentage with the funds allowed by the General Assembly?
