Reaching the Poor with Health, Nutrition, and Population Services

published in 2005 (follow up of the 2004 publication)


This report from the World Bank presents eleven case studies commissioned by the Reaching the Poor Program, that point to numerous strategies that can help health programs reach the poor much more effectively than at present. The studies look at four countries in Africa, four in Asia and three in Latin America. The studies document how well or how poorly health, nutrition, and population programs have performed in reaching disadvantaged groups. Overall, they demonstrate that health programs can reach the poor far better than they presently do.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
