|Abstract:||Health for All is a continuing, valid and timeless aspirational goal. While considerable health gains have been made globally, as also in the countries of the Region, in pursuance of health for all by the year 2000, much remains to be done. The unfinished agenda has been compounded by socioeconomic, environmental, demographic and epidemiological changes under way. Hence the rationale for renewing commitment to the social goal for health for all and defining a new policy and strategy to achieve it in the 21S' century, keeping in view the new challenges and opportunities. The global health policy - Health for all in the twenty-first centuly - Global Health Declaration - and the Regional Health Declaration are milestones in that direction. Appropriate action has been initiated for implementation of the principles and policy guidance of the Regional Health Declaration, as decided by the fiftieth session of the WHO Regional Committee for South East Asia. The Regional Committee may make a note of the developments in this behalf and provide further guidance for coordinated and accelerated implementation of the Regional Health Declaration.|
