Health for All by the Year 2000 - Where has the WHO gone?
Enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is a fundamental human right of all people 2. This is seen as an important outcome as well as a goal of sustainable human development. Yet at the dawn of the 21st century massive worldwide disparities in the provision of health care continue to exist; 800 million people still lack access to health services 3. The rate of development of the first world has been greater than that of the third world so the gap between “haves” and “have nots” is greater than ever; the richest 1.2 billion people in the world account for 82.7% of the total global wealth4.
