Summary/Abstract: This paper presents the research results of a part from my dissertation „Health, Disease and Hygiene: Towards Social Construction of the Citizen Body in the Interwar Period”. In the dissertation, I conducted a study of institutionalization of hygiene through law. The focus of the article is the difficult process of institutionalizing hygienist-doctors in Bulgaria from 1878 to 1939. The final form of institutionalization is shaped by the biopolitical project of the interwar period.
