According to the work which has given informations about regions and prosperities of Sanjak of Bayezid and the other towns there had been negligibly small establishment and staff on public health. Thus there was only one doctor employed in Sanjak of Bayezid in 1913. Besides the absence of health services inadequacy of clean water and the sewage have been the main causes of infectious diseases those seen in the region. Shortages on services those provide public health cause the people of the region to survive like the people of middle ages.
