Description:
This document represents the first step in developing a statement of health policy designed to address the needs of the population to the turn of the century . While there is a lonq tradition of reviews and planning Frameworks For particular health services or client groups this is the first attempt to view health policy as an integrated whole and in a broader perspective than simply health services . This is a consultative document and it is aimed at a wide audience - the community at large . For these reasons it is not prescriptive or technical in its approach but rather , suggests t h e broad direction and pre - requisites or effective measures to control and combat contemporary health problems. It is intended to generate discussion , not just among those immediately concerned with health policy or health services but among the community generally most of whom also have reason to be concerned about health , either as patients or as tax-payers . In the light of this discussion it is hoped that a broad consensus will emerge on the future direction and content of health policy. *note title page missing*
