This report is a brief presentation of the health and medical problems facing Jews in Europe, as a result of the second world war. It also offers an account of the type of health work which Jewish organizations have carried out during this period of time. Because of the difference in character of the work of the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in different countries of Europe, the discussion is divided into two sections: the first covering the DP countries where the JDC has worked directly as an organization supplementary to the UNRRA and the IRO, and second, the non-DP countries where the JDC has worked indirectly through subventions to local Jewish organizations. Above all, the character of the problems differ in the two types of countries since from almost every standpoint the situation and the needs of the Jewish people for whom they are providing care have been and are different.
