Directed toward the improvement of health care for mothers and young children, this report describes a number of comprehensive programs focused on health and reports on projects which have singled out one or more specific maternal or child health services. Included are descriptions of existing community programs for pregnant schoolgirls, health policies and procedures for day care centers, family planning services, and services for crippled children. Considerable attention is given to a discussion of the acute manpower shortage, especially that of trained medical personnel. (AJ)
