Testing new approaches to health care planning and management

Scientifically sound health technology can be developed by testing new approaches to planning and managing health care systems and facilities and by supporting research into ways of integrating appropriate technologies into health infrastructures. Such health technology would enhance the adaptability to local needs and maintainability by community resources, including the maintenance and repair of equipment used in health care. Programmes to facilitate the transfer and sharing of information and expertise would be developed, including communication methods and educational materials.
This strategy features in the framework of Agenda 21 as formulated at UNCED (Rio de Janeiro, 1992), now coordinated by the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development and implemented through national and local authorities.
