Distinguished international experts evaluate in this volume how health and nutrition in poor countries have been affected by economic adjustments made in response to external shocks. They explore the origins, magnitude, and future outlook of the adjustments required of developing countries; discuss the impact on health and nutritional services; consider what policies would be most effective in minimizing the adverse effects on food and nutrition; and examine what can be done to achieve the best possible health services in the face of economic constraints and crisis.
