be made. Efforts should be made by African states to balance investments in various sectors of the economy as they pursue SAP programs. Adjustment programs that tend to ignore the welfare of the people are bound to perpetuate the socioeconomic crisis of the 1980s that necessitated SAPS. A well-educated and healthy population is an investment to be treasured. Adjustment programs will only benefit the people if they are initiated by the people for the interests of the people. African governments have to learn from African women, who have demonstrated unsurpassed innovativeness in developing survival strategies to cope with the crisis. They have thus enabled the governments to maintain some political stability. African states that are committed to a long-term solution of the ongoing socioeconomic crisis should best realize that the IMF packages are mainly serving the interests of capital.
