AN ACT

To establish a Hawaiian Board of Health.

Whereas, the outer districts of this kingdom are greatly in want of physicians; and whereas, it is thought advisable to establish a system of licensing Hawaiian practitioners of medicine; therefore,

BE IT ENACTED, by the King and the Legislative Assembly of the Hawaiian Islands, in the Legislature of the Kingdom assembled:

Section  1. His Majesty the King shall appoint a Board of Health of native born Hawaiians, consisting of three persons, who shall serve during the King’s pleasure, and whose duty it shall be to examine and inquire into the qualifications and good moral characteristics of native Hawaiians who wish to practice medicine in this kingdom.

Sec. 2. Said Board, or a majority thereof, shall give to each candidate, of whose qualifications they are satisfied, a certificate to that effect.

Sec. 3. Upon the receipt of the certificate, as in Section 2 set forth, the Minister of Interior is hereby authorized, in his discretion, to grant to the applicant, upon the receipt of ten dollars, a license to practice medicine for one year.

Sec. 4. Every physician thus licensed shall keep a written record of all his business, setting forth the nature of the disease, the medicines used, the number of cures effected, the number of deaths, the names, sexes and places of residence of his patients; which book of record shall at all times be open to the inspection of the Hawaiian Board of Health, or the Minister of the Interior, or his agent; and any practitioner who shall not keep his record properly, or shall fail or refuse to exhibit the same when called upon to do so, shall,  upon conviction thereof,  before a Police or District Justice, be fined in a sum not exceeding one hundred dollars.

Sec. 5. Any practitioner who shall be convicted of the practice of Anaana, Hoopiopio, Hoounauna or Hoomanamana, shall forfeit his license.

Sec. 6. Any native Hawaiian who shall practice medicine without having obtained a license, as hereinbefore set forth, shall, upon conviction thereof, before a Police or District Justice, be fined in a sum not less than twenty nor more than one hundred dollars.

Sec. 7. This Act shall take effect and become a law from and after the date of its passage.

Approved this 23d day of June,1868.
