With the recently developed ENSTINET, it is expected that more systematic and organized research will be conducted, especially in such long overlooked fields as health manpower development, current data regarding health status of the population, and real assessment of needs.
Also of importance is evaluation of the different, multiple, and versatile cooperative projects conducted in collaboration with international agencies and organizations to determine whether all these human and material resources are going in the right direction toward achieving the goal of health for all by the year 2000.
