Excerpt
INTRODUCTION In his opening remarks, Dr Karefa-Smart pointed out that pharmaceutical and technological advances in the past decade have resulted in many new diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities; at the same time, however, many new developing countries, with extremely limited facilities for medical care, have emerged. In the more developed countries the introduction of highly specialized services such as open heart surgery, electronic patient monitoring, peritoneal and renal dialysis, organ transplantation, and supervoltage radiotherapy has been progressing at a startling pace. Similary, laboratory equipment has been automated, electronic computers have been applied to the processing of records and to the diagnosis of illness, and systems analysis has been introduced as aa aid to planning, all at enormous cost in monej- and manpower. However, developing countries still face the problem of providing the most basic medical care for urgent cases, and the expenditure that would be necessary for the establishment of preventive services must be evaluated against this background under conditions of dire penury in money, physical facilities, and manpower.
