The goal for Health for All by the Year 2000 was adopted by the Ministers of Health from countries around the world who gathered at the Alma Ata (now Almaty) Kazakhstan in 1978 at the International Conference on Primary Health Care. With the arrival of the year 2000, the hope of attaining the goal has vanished. However, reviewing and formulating strategies for ensuring that the goal of Health for Allis attained by all members of the human family as soon as possible is now as relevant as ever. Health for All in Bangladesh contains the most comprehensive information available about primary health care services in Bangladesh, including activities in maternal and child health care, family planning, reproductive health care, nutrition, quality of care, and health care financing. The new major policies in health, population and nutrition that have been recently adopted are reviewed along with major new national initiatives which are just now beginning. Based on this review, a comprehensive set of lessons are drawn from the Bangladesh experience to date, with the aim of creating a vision for how all of Bangladesh's citizens can attain the highest level of health possible. One of the central themes of the book is the importance of the local community, NGOs, and the Government working together, particularly in the effort of improve the health of the poorest of the poor, who need high quality primary care services the most. This book should be of interest of anyone working in the health, population and nutrition fields in Bangladesh and also to those outside of Bangladesh who are interested in issues pertaining to primary health care in developing countries.
