Description

This text documents the significant changes in the health situation in Sub-Saharan Africa during the past few decades. The authors discover that although advances have been made as a result of specific interventions from health services, higher educational levels, the impact of better nutrition and an improved water supply, the progress has not been uniform throughout the region. They conclude that the nations of the region need to review their national health policies, to abandon old strategies that are not compatible with the new goals, to design programmes based on new approaches, and to make rapid progress in new directions.show more
