Although the desired shape of future health systems in many ECA countries is discernible, the process for getting there must be invented along the way. A Health Sector Strategy for the Europe and Central Asia Region reviews substantive issues facing health policymakers in ECA. It summarizes the World Banks experience so far in this arena and the lessons it suggests. Furthermore, it outlines both an external strategy by which the Banks ECA health staff could assist countries to restructure their health systems and an internal strategy by which the staff could organize their own activities to achieve this result. The publication offers those outside the Bank a basis for professional dialogue to foster constructive change in the Banks approaches.
