Former Director of PAHO, Héctor R. Acuña, wrote this book with the hope that a reasonably detailed examination of the past, present and future of the Americas' cooperation in health matters and of PAHO's work would provide a context for understanding the unparalleled challenge of achieving "Health for All by the Year 2000." The overview consists of seven chapters: The Historical Background; Health in the Americas: 1947-1970; The 1970s, Part I; The 1970s, Part II; The Economic and Social Future; The Next Twenty Years in Health Care; and The Future of Infrastructural Needs. The text is rich with historical milestones and holds a clear vision of the future.
