"Worldwide roots of ill-health lie in poverty, lack of education,mal-distribution and misuse of often scarce resources. Towards Unity for Health (TUFH) grew out of the recognized imperative to address the fragmentation of health systems. In a given country, those who identify health issues, or act on health determinants, or decide on the use of resources, or deliver health services, or train health manpower are usually different groups which may or may not share a value health system with the same sense of priority. In contrast, effective programs in health development have shown to rest on willingness and capacity to create powerful synergies."
