Watkins, David A., Gavin Yamey, Marco Schäferhoff, Olusoji Adeyi, George Alleyne, Ala Alwan, Seth Berkley et al. "Alma-Ata at 40 Years: Reflections from the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health." The Lancet 392.10156 (October 2018): 1434-1460.

Abstract

The 40th anniversary of the Alma-Ata Declaration gave the Lancet Commission on Investing in Health an opportunity to assess progress towards grand convergence, and to reflect on the future of primary health care in the context of the modern universal health coverage movement. We also reflected on the future of official development assistance for health and its role in achieving grand convergence and the health-related Sustainable Development Goals.
