ACTIVITIES OF SANITARY HYGIENE TECHNOLOGY FUND IN NIŠ ON SANATION OF RURAL AREAS IN TIMOK AREA OF MORAVA PROVINCE, BETWEEN WORLD WARS I AND II
Petar Paunović and Olivera Radulović
In the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, the largest part of the population (80%) lived in poverty, ignorance and under poor hygienic conditions. The biggest problem was the supply of drinking water.
In most villages, the population was supplied with drinking water from rivers, unsanitary wells and springs, ponds where water was polluted and unhealthy. That is why the outbreaks of infectious intestinal disease were frequent.
Priority in the work of the Public Health Institute in Niš, in the province of Morava, between the two world wars, was the provision of safe (healthy) drinking water. The activities of the Public Health Institute Nis (sanitary engineering), in the Timok area, present professional and technical solutions essential for the achievements of health care policy at that time in the Morava province. Great importance for Health Institute sanitary engineering in Niš was ascribed to about 15 health offices in the Timok area of the in Morava province, which existed after 1926.
