As a practical, popular and revolutionary socialist document, The Condition of Working Class in England is a classic handed down from generation to generation of Engels' in-depth study of the social living conditions of the British working class based on historical materialism, and shows Engels' great concern for the health of the working class among the words. At present, there are few research achievements on Engels' health exposition in academic circles. By interpreting this classic documentary work, it is able to sort out Engels' concern of the health of the working class under capitalist conditions from the aspects of healthy life, healthy work, health service, health guarantee and healthy environment, analyze the social root of the health condition, systematically grasp the ideological essence of Engels' important exposition on the health of the working class, and provide important theoretical and practical guidance for the further development of people's health work in the new era.
