Robert Makgill

Robert Makgill was a key figure in the development of New Zealand's public health system. He became one of the country's first district health officers when the central government took on greater responsibility for public health. He was to play an important role during the 1918 influenza pandemic and its aftermath, notably as ‘the chief architect' of the ‘the most useful legacy of the 1918 influenza pandemic’, the 1920 Health Act.
