Territorial Department of Health, Juneau. While reporting of
venereal diseases has improved, it is estimated that only 30 to 40 per
cent of all cases are reported. During the past year (1940-41), 236
eases of syphilis and 410 cases of gonorrhea were reported, with 13
deaths from syphilis, 4 among white and 9 among natives. An
increase of 101 cases of syphilis and 119 of gonorrhea over last year
indicates both improved reporting and more actual cases occurring,
undoubtedly directly due to the great influx of persons in connection
with defense projects. Diagnostic facilities in the form of equipment
for taking specimens as well as laboratory facilities have been made
available to all physicians in the Territory, and free drugs are dis-
tributed for treatment. On June 30 the distribution of a new drug
for the treatment of gonorrhea was begun : sulf athiazole, administered
under the supervision of a physician, will result in from 80 to 100 per
cent cures of all cases, and the eventual elimination of this heretofore
practically incurable disease seems to be a fair possibility.



Several Alaska groups have been active in observing Social Hygiene Day
each year.

Territorial Board of Health, Hawaii, Honolulu. A marked increase
in efforts to reduce and prevent venereal diseases throughout the
Territory has been made during the past three years. This activity was
made possible through an increased allotment of federal funds for
this purpose. Government physicians' official reports showed that the
venereal disease treatments given by them during the year 1940
totalled 14,478 as compared with 9,074 during the previous year.
Treatments during the fiscal year 1938 totalled 5,572 as compared with
378 in 1937, when the program was initiated.

Services available under the program included investigations, case finding,
case supervision, free treatment for indigent patients and various laboratory
tests for diagnostic purposes. Drugs for treating gonorrhea and syphilis are
obtainable from the Board of Health by any physician for indigent patients
provided each case is reported. These reports are held in strict confidence and
are not made public except in the instance of delinquents who may be prosecuted
for failure to undergo treatment while in the communicable stage.

Eight treatment centers, four on Oahu, two on Maui, one on Molokai and one
on Lanai, were in operation under the general supervision of the Board of Health
throughout the year. The Communicable Disease Services of the Bureau of
Public Health Nursing increased visits to syphilis and gonorrhea patients and
contacts for educational purposes. Many of the patients visited had attended
the maternal health conferences and discovered their infection there. The number
of venereal disease clinics, sessions held and attendance all increased during the
year. A new service instituted under the venereal disease control program was
the culturing of gonococci for diagnostic purposes in the Honolulu laboratory.

The above report was written early in 1941, but it is the Editors' understanding
that the attack on Honolulu by the Japanese on December 7, and the subsequent
emergency conditions have made little difference in social hygiene activities and
efforts, except to focus and concentrate them more sharply to deal promptly
with any problems of venereal disease control as these arise.

Palama Settlement, Honolulu. This voluntary health center regu-
larly sponsors social hygiene educational and other activities, and is
in frequent correspondence with A.S.H.A. headquarters.



Dr. William F. Snow, Chairman of the A.S.H.A. Executive Committee, visited
Hawaii in June, 1941, and conferred at length with health and law enforcement
officials and voluntary groups concerning the program in operation at that time.

Department of Health, San Juan. A central directing office aud
35 venereal disease field clinics represent the basic organization of
the Bureau of Venereal Diseases. Purposes of the program are ex-
pressed under four points : (1) Uncover all positive cases of venereal
diseases and their contacts; (2) Bring each case discovered under
competent medical care; (3) Keep infectious cases under care until
they are no longer a menace to society; and (4) Prevent new infec-
tions through medical education of the public and through legal
measures.

To cope with the agreement by the War and Navy Departments, the Federal
Security Agency and state health departments for the control of venereal diseases
in areas where armed forces are concentrated, the Health Department has
modified and intensified its plans. As an advanced preliminary educational
effort, 300,000 leaflets in Spanish, describing the symptoms, dangers and prophy-
laxis of venereal diseases have been distributed among the civilian population.
A system of reporting probable sources of venereal disease infections in military
or naval personnel has been developed and put into practice by the Health
Department in full cooperation with the armed forces. On this account, special
personnel has been attached to carry out the epidemiological investigation.

Considering the fact that the Army has been mechanized and prostitutes motorized,
enabling them to travel far away from their bases, this campaign has not been
limited to military areas but is being carried on in the rest of the Island as well.

Sanitary Begulation No. 107, concerning the control of transmissible diseases,
is applied to recalcitrant infected persons with communicable syphilis or gonor-
rhea. The Health Department is also prepared to give preferential care to all
communicable syphilitic and gonorrheal cases discovered in the preliminary physi-
cal examination held by the local military board during the draft.

Medicines are purchased and distributed through the central directing office
in order to control their usage. Beside the venereal disease clinics, other gov-
ernmental and semi-private institutions are supplied with medicine to be used
specifically for the treatment of venereal diseases.

The cooperation offered by the Biological Laboratory of the Health Depart-
ment to physicians, and government and private institutions resulted in a marked
increase in the number of tests made for venereal diseases. Greatest increase
was in the diagnosis of early syphilis through darkneld examination and of
gonorrhea by culture.

Members of the staff studied in the United States during the year. A special
institute was given under the auspices of the School of Tropical Medicine and
the Health Department by Dr. Walter Clarke, Medical Director of the American
Social Hygiene Association and Dr. Edward L. Keyes, Professor Emeritus of
Urology of Cornell University, with ten physicians from the clinics attending the
full course and many social workers, nurses and private physicians attending
special lectures. Physicians, social workers and nurses attended a five-day course
of in-service training at the Mayagiiez Health Unit.

Social Hygiene Day was celebrated with the usual proclamation by the Gover-
nor, by radio programs, and by articles in the local press. . . . Pamphlets in
Spanish (Cuidar de Su Salud Es Servier a la Nacion To Preserve Your Health
Is to Serve the Nation; La Verdad sobrc la Sifilis The Truth about Syphilis;
La Verdad sobre la Gonorrea The Truth about Gonorrhea) have been distrib-
uted, in the hundreds of thousands. With These Weapons has been shown all
over the island to audiences totaling 19,182 persons.
