Legislation on public health issues in Austria is fragmented and in some cases outdated and patchy according to the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.[1]

There is an Austrian Public Health Association (Österreichische Gesellschaft für Public Health).


Between 1914 and 1918 the average weight of a nine year old in Vienna dropped from 30kg to 22.8kg. Milk consumption in the city fell in the same period from 900,000 litres daily to 70,000.[2]

Infant mortality between 1960 and 2009 declined immensely in Austria.
