Report of the World Health Organization Expert Working Group


This report to the Director-General of WHO is framed within the possibilities of action of that Organization. WHO, as mandated by its constitution, has been central to or an active participant in all debates on the changing panorama of health, particularly that in developing countries, and on health inequities. Several commissions and working groups were established in recent years to examine one or other facet of the difficult problem of how to change this scenario for the better. Many of the new challenges are blurring the differences between developed and developing countries.
