Implementation of the strategy for health for all by the year 2000 in the African Region
Abstract1. In accordance with resolutions WHA39.7 (1986), AFR/RC35/R1 (1985) and AFR/RC37/R14 (1987) Member States conduct periodic monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of their national health-for-all strategy. They thus produced reports in 1983, 1988 and 1994 on the monitoring of progress, and in 1985 and 1991 on evaluation of the implementation of their strategy. 2. From 1 January to 31 March 1997, Member States of the African Region of WHO conducted the Third Evaluation covering the period 1991-1996 and endeavoured to provide answers to the following basic questions: HQW have political, social and economic factors evolved and influenced health development? What have been the performance of national health systems in this context? How far has the health status of the population improved? 3. The conclusions of this Third Evaluation are of crucial importance because the evaluation is the last of its kind conducted before the year 2000. Furthermore, as the Regional Committee stated at its forty-sixth session (1996), discussions on long-term health development policies for coming decades should be based on an Objective assessment of the present situation and past trends. That is why in their conclusions, Member States and World Health Organization are placing emphasis on future prospects. 4. This report is the contribution of the Regional Office to the Third Evaluation. It is supplemented by Member State contributions (see document AFR/RC47/INFO.DOC/2). After the deliberations of the Regional Committee, the Regional summary of the Third Evaluation will be published under the title: "Report on the world health situation. Volume 2: African Region". 5. The Regional Committee is requested to examine, supplement and adopt this evaluation report and give guidance to the Regional Director for drawing up the long-term health development Policy for the African Region, based on lessons learnt from this Third Evaluation.
