|Abstract:||At the invitation of the Ministry of Health and the Parliament of Malta, an expert team of WHO staff and consultants carried out an assessment of Malta's potential for investment for health with the purpose of assessing the possible contribution of health 6 as distinct from the mere provision of health care services 6 as an essential resource for social, economic and health development. The group concluded that a successful contribution would be possible and has made specific recommendations as to necessary steps to advance this. However, for the contribution to be successful and sustainable, attention would need to be given to the willingness and structural ability for cross sectoral working, in particular at the policy making level. Further consideration would also need to be given to mechanisms for ensuring and sustaining the implementation of an investment for health strategy. This report describes the results of the appraisal and concludes with a restricted number of recommendations for specific actions. Taking these actions forward will rely on long term partnerships between policy makers from across all sectors which impact upon the health of the people of Malta|
