World Health Organization (WHO)

The thirty-ninth World Health Assembly met at Geneva from 5 to 16 May 1986 and approved a global report on the first evaluation of strategies to achieve health for all by the year 2000, as set out in the 1982 action plan. The evaluation pinpointed the challenges member States and the World Health Organization (WHO) would face during the rest of the century. The Assembly urged member States to make full use of their strategy reports in guiding national health policies and to strengthen district health systems based on primary health care. Regarding the economic aspects of the implementation of the health-for-all strategies, the Assembly, recognizing that the widespread economic crisis had resulted in cuts in health budgets, appealed to developed countries and international organizations to increase their assistance to developing countries. It also called on developing countries to increase technical co-operation among themselves.
