A workshop, Feb 1997, Cape Coast (Ghana), organized together with other involved organizations, created a specific action plan for evolving a balanced, integrated and locally sustainable portfolio of health care services, promotion and education in order to provide every citizen with access to essential health care delivery and the ability to better his or her own health. Emphasis was placed on working within the broader context of multi-sectoral development, on building on locally available resources and on involving young people at every stage. Results of this initial plan are being extended to other areas worldwide in the hope that, by the year 2010, access to essential health care need be denied to no one. In this context, there are currently 12 further projects in operation.
