The people’s health in Victorian and Edwardian Ipswich

Dr.Anne Folan

The mortality rate in Ipswich fell quite dramatically between 1837 and 1910. One very important factor affecting this decline was the development of various facets of public health in the town, including the construction of the sewers and the appointment of the Medical Officer of Health. Anne Folan outlines the history of the development of public health initiatives in Ipswich during the Victorian and Edwardian periods and assesses their impact on the death rate.
