In this dissertation it will be my purpose to set forth the provisions of the Federal Social Security Act, passed in August, 1933, as it affects the two phases of health work; namely, Public Health Work and Maternal and Child Health Services. This will entail setting forth the nature, purpose and amounts of Federal appropriations to the several states to carry on health work, the different ways in which the states must comply in order to receive such benefits, and finally a few words concerning the health program to be in effect in the State of Montana.
