Governments and specifically ministries of health are responsible for the performance of the health sector and the extent to which it meets pro poor objectives. In redefining the role of governments in the provision of health care, policy makers, regulators and purchaser take up a steward function and are no longer only service providers. Effective health-sector stewardship ­ steering, supervising and enforcing the implementation of health policies and strategies ­ is of central importance to a pro poor health system.Dr GH Brundtland, former Director-General of WHO, argued: «ŠThe careful and responsible management of population well-being is the very essence of good government. In practice, this means that the steward provides leadership to all involved: setting the ³rules of the game² to help them behave in ways that reflect the public interest, monitoring how they behave, and ensuring corrective action is taken when required. Good stewardship is based on clear standards, applied well within the local context, in ways that are as effective and efficient as possibleŠ». (March 2002 )
