Health services can make an important contribution to improved health conditions among disadvantaged groups. Gwatkin, Davidson . Wagstaff, Adam; Yazbeck, Abdo . . Yet as the contents of this volume make clear, the health services supported by governments, and by agencies like ours too often fail to reach these people who need them most.

R Davidson Gwatkin, A Wagstaff, S Abdo Yazbeck. Many public and private health programmes fail to reach the poor. Instead, they disproportionately benefit those who are more economically advantaged.

AUTHORS: Isabel Craveiro, Paulo Ferrinho, Bruno de Sousa, Luzia Gonçalves. Disclosure of Parental HIV Positive Status: What, Why, When, and How Parents Tell Their Children in the Era of HAART in South Africa.

This volume presents eleven case studies that document how well or poorly health, nutrition, and population programs have reached disadvantaged groups in the countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America where they were undertaken. The studies were commissioned by the Reaching the Poor Program, undertaken by the Word Bank in cooperation with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Dutch and Swedish governments, in an effort to find better ways of ensuring that health, nutrition, and population programs benefit the neediest.These case studies, reinforced by other material gathered by the Reaching the Poor Program, indicate clearly that health programs do not have to be inequitable. Although most health, nutrition, and population services achieve much lower coverage among disadvantaged groups than among the better-off, many significant and instructive exceptions exist. These show that the poor can be reached much more effectively than at present and point to potentially promising strategies for doing so.
