A Mitad del camino hacia la salud para todos en el a~no 2000 : informe de diversos pa'ises / editado por E. Tarimo y A. Creese
Tarimo, Eleuther; Creese, Andrew L; World Health Organization ( 1991 )
Abstract

Se examina en este libro el grado en que los principios de la atención primaria de salud, formulados en la Conferencia de Alma-Ata en 1978, han repercutido sobre la asistencia sanitaria en diferentes partes del mundo. Si bien se reconoce la importancia de los cambios en la política sanitaria y en la estructura de los servicios, se hace un esfuerzo especial por poner al descubierto lo que verdaderamente ha sucedido en el aspecto humano, que es donde radican tanto las ambiciones de la atención primaria como sus signos de verdadero éxito. Se presentan quince informes de país escritos por expertos en salud pública que conocen directamente las experiencias correspondientes. Dichos informes, redactados con espíritu de autocrítica, revelan la diversidad de maneras en que los principios de la atención primaria se han puesto en práctica tanto en los países ricos como en los pobres. Los informes del Canadá, Finlandia, Hungría y los Países Bajos demuestran la aplicabilidad de la atención primaria de salud en los países industrializados, bien sea para contener los costos sanitarios, llegar a la población subatendida, reducir la dependencia con relación al sistema hospitalario o cosechar los beneficios sociales y económicos de la medicina preventiva. Muy otro es el panorama que configuran los informes de Burkina Faso, Etiopía, Mozambique, Nigeria y Papua Nueva Guinea, en donde las prioridades siguen dictadas por la necesidad de asistencia sanitaria esencial y donde los obstáculos van desde altos índices de analfabetismo y pobreza excesiva hasta ataques terroristas a los puestos de salud y persistencia de remedios tradicionales peligrosos. Mientras que el informe de Egipto sobresale por su descripción franca de los reveses y los errores, los informes más alentadores provienen de China, Indonesia, Malasia, Sri Lanka y Tailandia donde los datos y las cifras revelan mejoras espectaculares en salud. Se demuestra la fuerza del concepto de atención primaria para alcanzar una mejor salud, sirva de criterio para medirla la prolongación de la esperanza de vida o el simple aumento en el número de teléfonos y vehículos con que cuenta la red sanitaria rural

Achieving health for all by the year 2000 : midway reports of country experiences / edited by E. Tarimo & A. Creese
Tarimo, Eleuther; Creese, Andrew L; World Health Organization ( 1990 )
Abstract

Explores the extent to which the principles of primary health care, mapped out at the Alma-Ata Conference in 1978, have had a real impact on health care in different parts of the world. While acknowledging the importance of changes in health policy and the structure of services, the book makes a special effort to uncover what has actually happened in the human setting where both the ambitions of primary health care and the true measures of success reside. The book consists of 15 country reports authored by public health experts having first-hand knowledge of experiences in the country. Written in a spirit of frank self-assessment, these country profiles illustrate the diversity of ways in which the principles of primary health care have been put to work in rich and poor countries alike. Reports from Canada, Finland, Hungary, and the Netherlands demonstrate the applicability of primary health care in industrialized countries, whether to contain health costs, reach the underserved, or reap the benefits of preventive medicine. A completely different set of challenges emerges in reports from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Papua New Guinea, where priorities remain defined by the need for essential health care and obstacles range from high rates of illiteracy and severe poverty to terrorist attacks on health posts. Whereas a frank documentation of setbacks and mistakes characterizes the report from Egypt, facts and figures from China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand reveal dramatic improvements in health. These reports confirm the power of the primary health care approach to achieve better health, whether measured in terms of extended life expectancy or a simple increase in the number of telephones and vehicles in the rural health network

Closing the health inequalities gap : an international perspective : / written by Iain K. Crombie ... [et al.]
Crombie, Iain K; Irvine, Linda; Elliott, Lawrence; Wallace, Hilary; World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe ( 2005 )
Abstract

This report presents an analysis of official documents on government policies to tackle inequalities in health from 13 developed countries. All countries recognize that health inequalities are caused by adverse socioeconomic and environmental circumstances. However they differ in their definitions of inequalities and in their approaches to tackling the problem. Sweden and Northern Ireland have structured their overall public health policy to tackle the underlying determinants of inequalities in health. England is the only country with a separate comprehensive policy. Most countries also have policies on poverty, social inclusion, and social justice. These are motivated by a concern for human rights and dignity and deal primarily with the underlying causes of health inequalities. While broadly setting the same overarching goal, policies on health inequalities show many different features. Policymakers face two challenges: to ensure that strategies to tackle the macroenvironmental factors feature in policy on inequalities in health, and to ensure that health becomes a prominent issue in social justice policy. Few countries have a coordinated approach to tackling inequalities in health
