Gender and Primary Health Care: Some Forward Looking Strategies

Published on 1 January 1992

While health has always been seen as an integral aspect of development planning, the significance attached to it has varied according to the debates about development in the wider sense.

Currently, there is a tension between those who treat health provision as the welfare arm of structural adjustment policy, those who treat it as a form of human resource investment – and hence critical to the process of economic recovery – and those who see it an end in itself, an essential component of human welfare.
