  • Function / Content
    Public health was attributed to the portfolio of Chief Secretary from 1855 1890. The Health Act 1889 established the Board of Public Health, replacing which replaced the Central Board of Health. The Board was established with the primary purpose developing policy with regard to the Act, with a particular focus on key areas such as housing, maternal and child welfare, infectious diseases, hospitals, offensive trades and pollution, sewerage, and animal domestication.
