Paradoxically, as the number of schools of public health in the United States has increased (from 4 in 1922 to 18 at present), they are increasingly criticized, their goals have become less well-defined, and there is even concern as to the viability of some. This report of a conference sponsored by the Macy Foundation includes papers by 18 participants, representing some of the schools and other organizations. Included are representatives of schools in England, France, the eastern European countries, and Latin America. The conference dealt with organizational relationships with other schools; new approaches; and predictions of their future role.
