In the last 25 years we have witnessed revolutionary changes in the field of health, particularly in the low and middle income countries. This paper discusses some of the new problems which need to be solved and some of the challenges which lie ahead. Among the former we can mention the financing of health care services and the provision of health care to an aging population. Among the latter we include the need for improvement of the quality of health services and the training of appropriate health manpower.
