Publication of World Health Report 2000 'an act of remarkable courage,' says school expert
Date:9/3/2010

eport succeeded in placing the assessment of health system performance firmly on the political and research agendas. It emphasised that providing money for health care is not enough unless consideration is also given as how to supply those things that make it possible to deliver health care, such as trained staff, pharmaceuticals and appropriate facilities. Crucially, he says, the report stimulated a major programme of research and analysis, and considerable improvements in the availability of data, although there is still much to be done.

'Perhaps the greatest achievement of the 2000 World Health Report was to place health systems performance on the political agenda', says McKee. 'It is now much more difficult for a politician to dismiss comparative data on performance; perhaps this is the report's greatest legacy'.

The two other commentaries have been produced by Dr Julio Frenk, Dean of Harvard School of Public Health, who was involved in the design and execution of the report during his time as Executive Director of Evidence and Information for Policy at WHO, and Di McIntyre, Professor and South African Research Chair in 'Health and Wealth' at the University of Cape Town. Dr Frenk focuses on the context and content of the Report, discussing its important conceptual contributions and the concerns raised by some governments regarding the measurement of health system performance, while Professor McIntyre focuses on how the report contributed to health system financing, and led to more equitable financing and access to health care.
