4. Effective health insurance, properly regulated to most efficiently
serve the public.

5. Analysis and planning to meet manpower and educational re-
quirements for health services.

6. A long-term plan for limited and secondary State financial as-
surances to aid in providing critical capital programs for health

7. Modification of essential health programs to utilize maximum
Federal assistance; abandonment of Federal money where a project
does not fit in our health program.

In addition to the major contribution to State health provided by
the conventional medical and hospital care programs, there are num-
erous special areas in the health field that require evaluation, plan-
ning, and coordination to effect an efficient and comprehensive total

Following are some examples:

1. Mental Hygiene, including Community Mental Health, Alco-
holics, and Drug Abuse.

2. Dentistry.

3. Rehabilitation.

4. Chronic Illness and Long-term Care.

5. Mental Retardation and Specialized Children's Programs.

6. Veterinary Services, particularly those related to food inspection.

Our present governmental health structure has grown without ade-
quate planning and reflects the fragmentation that has developed. The
public health framework needs to be analyzed and re-evaluated in
the light of modern objectives.

Action Program to Resolve the Problems

1. I hereby appoint a Special Ad Hoc Health Committee, com-
posed of able, energetic, and recognized civic leaders of broad ex-
perience. These individuals are not named to represent special in-
terests, but because of their wide perspective and general familiarity
with matters of public service. The views of special interest health
groups will be solicited by the Ad Hoc Committee, and specialty area
subcommittees will be formed to assist it in its work.

The two teaching medical centers — University of Maryland and
Johns Hopkins — will be requested to take a leadership role in the
work of the Ad Hoc Committee.
