SEA/RC50/14 - Regional health-for-all strategy towards 2020: South-East Asia Region
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 1997-07-14 )
Abstract

encompassing decent education, good health, community participation and environmental security. Increase in GNP with equity and social justice is a means towards this end. This fact was realized two decades ago when the call for Health for All by the Year 2000 was given by the World health Assembly in 1977. It was reinforced in the following year at Alma- Ata when primary health care was accepted as the key approach to attain health for all. The health situation in the countries of the WHO South-East Asia Region has improved significantly since 1977. Yet, HFA 2000 does not seem to be attainable by all populations. Accordingly, the World Health Assembly, in 1995, resolved to renew the HFA strategy, based on equity and solidarity. The Regional Committee for South-East Asia also resolved to do so by placing health at the centre of development. Formal and informal consultations for reviewing the HFA strategy have been taking place at national, regional and global levels. SEAR countries are incorporating renewal of HFA in their national health development plans. The challenges of poverty, malnutrition, illiteracy, low status of women, environmental degradation and communicable and noncommunicable diseases are indeed daunting. But the increase in life expectancy and reduction in infant mortality, the imminent prospect of eradication of polio and neonatal tetanus, and elimination of leprosy and guineaworm disease give hope that together much can be achieved to make HFA a reality. Based on country and intercountty inputs, this paper represents a Regional HFA Strategy for consideration by the Regional Committee, and as an additional contribution to the global policy on Health for All in the 21stCentury.

SEA/RC50/6 - Health sector reform
World Health Organization, Regional Office for South-East Asia ( 1997-06-23 )
Abstract

Health sector reform deals with fundamental change processes in policies and institutional arrangements, usually guided by the government. A radical change is impossible without realistic and robust political leadership and sound scientific evidence. Experience of many countries suggests that the success of reforms lies in how the process is applied and by whom, rather than how the contents are formulated. Sustained information and education on health sector reform are needed to generate wider political and public understanding and support. Continuous monitoring and review of health systems development are required. Research support is required to provide valid scientific evidence for strengthening the processes and mechanisms of health sector reform.
