Excerpt
With growing awareness not only that access to health care is a basic human right but that health is a valuable national asset, a primary aim of social development, and an essential means to sound economic and social progress, the crucial question that decision-makers at the highest level have to consider is not whether their country can afford to improve health services but whether it can afford not to do so. A parallel realization is tha.t achieving and maintaining health in a society is a task on a much broader scale than medical care and involves knowledge and skills beyond thlose available within the health sector and most certainly beyond those available within the health team as traditionally conceived and constituted. This is in no way to be interpreted as implying that the health sector did not, cannot, or should not! play a crucial role in a country's efforts to bring health to its people. It implies merely that, with a closer look at the past, a realistic view of the future, and a strong resolve to eliminate confl:icts of interest, leaders in the health sector can achieve a more positive role for that sector-whose only justification is the improvement of health andl whose survival will depend on its capacity to bring about such an improvement.
