Quite a short time ago the rhetoric of health care seemed to assume that society had a duty to provide all the health care from which each of its members could conceivably benefit. That idea might have been tenable in the middle years of this century, when technical complexity was less and costs were far below those now obtaining-though certainly no country reached that level of provision even then.

The aim of medical education in the African Region has long been a subject of debate. Medical training in Nigeria began in the 1930s in a technical college where the brightest students of the land were put through a rigorous course for treating the sick in an ill-equipped general hospital. The graduates were destined to rise no higher than an Assistant Medical Officer in the Civil Service, i.e., an assistant to a doctor trained in the United Kingdom. From that point on, ...

One of the few issues on which health care planners agree is that primary and general health care services should be responsible for the treatment of common mental disorders such as anxiety and depression.
