Excerpt
The World Health Assembly, composed of delegates from WHO's 191 Member States, met in Geneva from 11 to 16 May 1998. Mr Shri Saleem Iqbal Shervani of India, President of the Fiftieth World Health Assembly, opened this Fifty-first session. He expressed the view that the efforts of WHO and its Member States can only make an impact if carried out in alliance with others. Let us carry forward the mission of health for all in the twenty-first century with more vigour, he urged. The newly elected President of the Fiftyfirst World Health Assembly, Dr F.R. Al- Mousawi of Bahrain, noted that financial crises had involved cuts in government allocations for health projects and services at a time when demand for them was on the increase, and that many countries had been compelled to look for other sources of funding in order to maintain health services at the levels they had already achieved. Some countries have faced real hardships in this regardM,h e said, which demonstrate that, if the economy is liberalized too quickly, harm can be done to social services in general and to health service coverage rates for the poor and other vulnerable groups in particular.
