Analyzing the dimensions of the struggle for effective health care in the developing countries, this study demonstrates how current governmental and donor agency policies in such countries as Uganda, Ghana, Nepal, Pakistan and Vietnam have failed to develop efficient systems. The author argues against the current emphasis on decentralization and privatization, and outlines a framework for a long-term approach that should bring benefits and improvements in health care.
