Extending the ideas presented in the highly successful Health Planning: Qualitative Aspects and Quantitative Techniques (1972), this book looks at practical aspects of implementing primary health care programmes. The book's three sections cover: the policy issues and conceptual framework for planning, implementation, and evaluation; essential methods of planning for effective implementation; and specific tools and techniques in programme management. Part I contains chapters on the planning process itself, as well as management, evaluation, and health systems research. Part II considers the economic, political, epidemiological, demographic, and other disciplinary components of planning that contribute methods for health needs assessment and resources allocation. Specific analytical techniques presented in Part III relate to decision analysis, network analysis, survey techniques, cost-effectiveness appraisal, and many other areas. This practical text, aimed at public health students and administrators, emphasizes the difficult task of providing essential health services to scattered rural populations, in developing countries with limited resources.
