Six countries including Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Republic of Korea and Thailand were selected for indepth study and a standard study design was adopted by each country, which could be supplemented where appropriate with additional material and the basic source of information should be national compilations of data.

The first part consists of country profile, levels and trends of mortality, mortality differentials and Mortality and causes of death. Conclusions are laos given at the end of this part. The second part provides an overview of health services in Pakistan, recent health policies and implementation, Primary health care, Nutrition, manpower and training health expenditure and private sector health services.
