Health development in the South-East Asia Region: An overview
AbstractDescription: Health Development in the South-East Asia Region: An Overview, provides a vivid and unique glimpse of health development in the Region, particularly during the period 1998-2003. While major breakthroughs in public health have contributed to progress, the bold initiatives taken by the countries have helped to overcome some of the formidable health challenges. Various points of view on priority areas and issues are presented by eminent health scientists and public health administrators who, in the words of Dr Uton Muchtar Rafei, the WHO Regional Director, South-East Asia Region, and editor of this volume, spearheaded and even shaped some of thse health developments. The wide and valuable range of perspectives provided by the authors on different subjects, deserve to be given serious attention by those interested in health development in the Region.
