Description

Now in its sixteenth annual edition, the World Development Report 1993 is an essential reference on the world economy and the state of social and economic development. Like earlier editions, the 1993 Report incorporates research from all over the world, analyzing the conditions that surround the growth process and offering insights on appropriate policy measures for the future. Drawing on the latest Bank research, this edition examines national health policies worldwide and measures their success in improving health and reducing costs, describing approaches governments can take to improve the health of the poor. For the first time including available data for selected countries of the former Soviet Union and the Eastern and Central European economies, the World Development Indicators contain the most comprehensive and up-to-date data on health and economic development in more than 185 countries. Two appendices assess the global burden of disease and supplementary statistics concerned with financing and delivering health services. A timely survey and synthesis of contemporary economic issues worldwide, the World Development Report 1993 is invaluable to anyone interested in or concerned with economic development, international economics, and international politics.show more
