Some Special Health Problems of Island Developing and Some Other Specially Disadvantaged Countries

I gratefully acknowledge the assistance of the Sandoz Foundation in making funds available to me to collect information from and consult with governments in the Pacific, South East Asia, the Caribbean and elsewhere, and to consult with the World Health Organisation, the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Christian Medical Commission. This paper is based upon material from these sources and I am most grateful for the interest and the responses to my enquiries from these multiple authorities.
