HISTORY OF MANDATORY PREMARITAL HEALTH EXAMINATIONS

Ingrid Lanczová

Abstract


The study is an insight into the legal regulation of mandatory premarital health examinations in chosen European countries (Germany, France, Hungary) in the 20th century, and in the case of France even in the 21st century. There were no obligatory premarital health checkups in Slovakia (1939–1945) and Czechoslovakia (1918–1938, 1945–1989). However, as the reader can notice, the relevant expert discussion was on a relatively high level.
