The European Commission, DG XII, has recently published a booklet presenting an overview of its scientific cooperation activities with developing countries in the area of health system research.

The booklet, "Health research with developing countries - Volume 1: Health System Research", provides an overview of the "health systems research" component of the Community's specific RTD programme in the field of cooperation with third countries and international organizations - Developing countries (INCO-DC) and the earlier STD 3 programme in the field of the life sciences and technologies for developing countries. It combines summaries of completed contracts for STD 3 and a catalogue of ongoing and new contracts for STD 3 and INCO-DC. Other areas of health research covered by these programmes, pertaining to tools for the prevention and control of diseases, are presented in separate volumes in the same series.

The aim of this section of the INCO-DC programme is to strengthen the scientific basis of the delivery of health care in developing countries in order to optimize the use of available resources. Particular emphasis is given to the process of partnership building and the reinforcement of ongoing collaboration.
