Between 1969 and 1979, the health sector in Equatorial Guinea, like all other sectors, experienced Systematic degradation, disorganization and neglect. With donor support, the Government has since 1979 initiated efforts to revamp the health service activities. However, this attempt has so far proved insufficient to cori:ect the health system's fundamental weaknesses, and endemic tropical and parasitic diseases continue to be rampant, causing high morbidity and mortality. The Government is committedto improving the health indicators by strengthening health policy formulation and sector management, developing human resources, and increasing the capacity of the public health system to deliver basic health care services for the most vulnerable groups and the rural population. It has requested IDA assistance to help prepare a program.
