In May 1981, the Thirty-fourth World Health Assembly adopted the global strategy for “Health for All by the Year 2000” and decided to monitor the progress and evaluate the effectiveness of the strategy at regular intervals. A plan of action for the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the strategy was prepared and in September 1981, the WHO Regional Committee for South-East Asia endorsed the global strategy and the plan of action resulting from it. This plan envisaged, inter-alia, that the progress in implementing the national, regional and global strategies will be monitored every two years and their effectiveness evaluated every six years.
