Health and Hospitals

Principle objective of this lecture is to present on Health and Hospitals. During the Industrial Revolution there were huge advances made in science and technology. Huge progress was made in identifying and preventing many diseases. People felt that humankind was becoming god-like in its knowledge and achievements, and that nothing was impossible except the cure of infectious disease – a problem that continued to cause much misery. The real ‘Medical Revolution’ started in France. After the French Revolution the right to health was one of the ‘rights of man’ claimed by working people.
