Address by dr. Salim Amed Salim, Secretary-General of the Organization of African Unity to the Forty-Fifth World Health Assembly Special Plenary Meeting on the Relationship Between the World Economy, Health Development and Environment.
"In order, therefore, to meet the multifacetted challenge of managing world economy, health development and the environment, we will need to go into an alliance for resource mobilization in . favour of developing countries. The developing countries need better terms of trade, access to the developed markets, remunerative prices for their primary commodities and the resolution of the debt problem so as to increase the income levels of these countries and stimulate internal servings for investment. This will need to be complemented by increased aid and easy access to concessionary credit."
