Managing healthcare of poor countries.

After Alma Ata declaration it was widely percieved that by strengthening the primary healthcare system many poor countries would be able to achieve health for all by 2000. But it remained a pipedream even for countries such as India which after long subjugation by a foreign power realised the need for a stronger healthcare sysyem required in the country and produced an excellent plan called Bhore Commitee Report. This would have enabled achieving a very viable healthcare system but do to lack of political will and pressure from vested interests both national and international India took a misguided path which encouraged private healthcare at prohibitive cost. Brazil did better but recently corruption has dented its healthcare as well. So it has some similar problems as India.
