The report provides data on progress and trends in reaching the
Millennium Development Goals for health, nutrition and population. It
looks at poor-nonpoor disparities; health system reforms as a means of
laying building blocks for the efficient and equitable delivery of
interventions; the financing of health spending through domestic
resources and aid; and improving the effectiveness of development
assistance in health. In doing so, the report links the health
Millennium Development Goal agenda with the broader poverty-reduction
In addition, the report provides an inventory of World Bank
activities related to the health Millennium Development Goals and other
relevant activities as well as the activities of other multilateral and
bilateral aid agencies. Non-health initiatives inside and outside the
Bank of relevance, such as the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers
process, the Millennium Project; etc are also documented.
Of interest to policymakers in developing countries as well as staff
of development and technical agencies, this title provides a basis for
the international community to further the Millennium Development Goal
agenda in relation to health, nutrition and population.
