Case study: Poland
Does anything really work to solve profound health problems that face poor countries? Does development assistance from rich countries make any difference at all? The magnitude and profundity of current health challenges facing the developing world from AIDS to chronic malnutrition to the looming threat of tobacco-related cancers can seem daunting.
But past challenges have been surmounted and serve as object lessons: Even in countries with few financial resources and limited health infrastructure, sensible and systematic efforts to improve health have worked.
