Long Description
This publication summarizes the proceedings of a senior policy seminar held in Johannesburg, South Africa. The seminar examined two facets of sustainable health care financing: using available resources more effectively to extract more value for the money; and raising additional revenues for health care. Topics included orienting public health resources toward primary health care, improving control of and accountability for district financing, improving hospital efficiency, and making more effective use of donor funding.
Main Description
Despite efforts by Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries to tackle environmental problems, there are still a number of serious environmental problems that require immediate and urgent action. The Environmental Action Programme (EAP) provides a framework and guide for identifying the highest priority problems and for developing realistic, efficient and cost-effective solutions. This book describes the features of the broad strategy and action framework that EAP represents.Annexes provide summaries of topics such as human health problems and pollution "hot-spots"; the impact of economic reform and industrial restructuring; and priorities for environmental expenditure. Boxes discuss nitrates in drinking water in Romania, short-term threats to the environment in Russia, and debt-for-environment swaps in Poland.
