6002. Other than three periodicals published by the Department of National Health and Welfare, all health education material such as books, pamphlets, folders and posters is produced) in quantity at the federal level and shipped in bulk to provincial departments where it is used by public health nurses and others in closest contact with the public. Quantities for all V.D. literature are determined by the provinces and then shipped to them after printing. This is in accordance with a recommendation made by the Dominion Council of Health.
In addition a great many individual requests are received and filled1 by this department for such publications as "The Canadian Mother and Child". Such requests come from expectant mothers, doctors, public health nurses and others in that field of endeavour. Further, many requests for informational material are received from groups and organizations such as the Women's Institutes, Red Cross, Home and School Associations and others. The department makes every effort to fill such requests as received.

(a) Canada's Health and Welfare, circulation 85,000 (English and French).
This bulletin is designed as a clearing house for health and welfare information between federal, provincial and municipal departments and independent and voluntary health, welfare and social service organizations. It seeks to publicize nation-wide health and welfare policies and problems, to acquaint each province and municipality with advances in other provinces and municipalities and to instil in medical, public health, welfare and community leaders a greater appreciation of health and welfare, services. It is distributed to all doctors, dentists, public health workers, social service and welfare workers, nurses, legislators both federal and provincial, teachers, municipal officials, clergy, trade unions, service clubs, women's organizations, libraries, newspapers, radio stations, and to many private citizens who request copies. The circulation list is, in common with other departmental periodicals, under constant revision.
