Abstract: The author establishes some necessary and sufficient conditions on a Hausdorff space $ Y$ which force every open proper map into $ Y$ to be surjective. Using this result, the author then shows that a local homeomorphism from a path connected space into a simply connected space is a global homeomorphism onto if and only if the map is proper.
