What Can Be Done to Foster Multisectoral Population Policies? Summary Report of a Seminar    [1.13 mb / PDF]
Date of Publication: May 01, 1997
Although the 1994 Cairo population conference affirmed the need for broadly defined multisectoral population policies, little tangible progress has been made toward realizing the goal of these policies. This report provides a brief summary of an informal seminar cosponsored by the Population Council and the Overseas Development Council on “What Can Be Done to Foster Multisectoral Population Policies” on 28 May 1997. The purpose of the meeting was to generate frank discussion among those working in the population field about the national, international, institutional, political, and policy factors that have, so far, largely impeded articulation and implementation of multisectoral population policies.

From the WHO website at Health systems consist of all the people and actions whose primary purpose is to improve health. They may be integrated and centrally directed, but often they are not. After centuries as small-scale, largely private or charitable, mostly ineffectual entities, they have grown explosively in this century as knowledge has been gained and applied. They have contributed enormously to better health, but their contribution could be greater still, especially for the poor. Failure to achieve that potential is due more to systematic failings than to technical limitations. It is therefore urgent to assess current performance and to judge how health systems can reach their potential.
