Medico-Social Research Board annual report 1973
Medico-Social Research Board
The success of the Board's work depends only partly on the work of the project supervisors and the careful consideration that is given to each of our research proposals by the Director of the Board. It is more dependent upon and due to the enthusiasm and hard work of the junior members of the research teams, the social research workers, secretaries and coding officers who often work long hours when the need arises. It can be seen from the research projects under way that our work is directed in the main to the unhappy and underprivileged members of our society. The care of the physically and mentally ill, retarded children, the aged, and the poor living in a bad environment. In addition, of course, we are undertaking research into some of the major problems of our society, alcoholism, self-poisoning by drugs, heart attacks, strokes, multiple sclerosis and coeliac disease. It is not enough that we should undertake research into these problems, particularly the problem of the poor and the underprivileged. We consider it an important part of our responsibility to see that the results of our researches are made known so that appropriate action is taken. We are aware that with most of the problems we are studying prevention has often much more to offer the community than treatment.
