Reports of Recent Meetings Special Health Problems of Island Developing and Other Specially Disadvantaged Countries

At their Lusaka Meeting in 1979 Commonwealth Heads of Government emphasised that attention needed to be given to the special problems faced by countries whose small size, isolation and scarce resources severely limited their capacity to achieve their development objectives. The Meeting requested the Commonwealth Secretary-General to pursue a programme of action which will enable the Commonwealth to respond both multilaterally and bilaterally to the special needs of these small countries.
