The ‘Power of Partnership: Research to Alleviate Poverty’ conference recently took place in Delhi, India from 3-5 December.
The event focused on the ESRC-DFID Joint Fund for Poverty Alleviation Research as it approaches its final phase.
There is a growing body of evidence that health contributes to individual wellbeing, household stability, and national development. In 1978, the Declaration of Alma-Ata was the first international declaration to state the importance of guaranteeing health as a citizen right, strengthening health systems, and focusing on primary health care. While important efforts have been made since then, the achievement of ‘health for all’ is still a challenge.
