Bill of Health refers to a certificate properly authenticated given to the ship's master stating whether there is infectious disease aboard a ship or in a port of departure. The bill of health is necessary whenever a ship sails from a suspected port or when it is required at the port of destination.
Informally it refers to an attestation as to condition, especially a favorable one. It can be a good report of one's physical condition or a favorable account of a person's or a company's financial position.
