Policy makers, planners and managers in the health sector remain our primary target and over the years, readership has expanded to include researchers, academics, and students, as well as health and development organisations and health systems experts in South Africa and internationally. The chapters represent a combination of commissioned research, experience, and available published literature, and the focus on equity, central to the 1998 Review, has been retained in a number of chapters.
