health and population dynamics would seem to represent different fields of study. Thus, when mention is made of health planning, the main preoccupation from the health point of view seem to be the provision of health infrastructure. In point of fact,health planning embraces population dynamics because the current structure and, feasible development of population in the future determine the health infrastructure required now and in future. It may be just as well to note that the argument is about public health, a term which embraces far more than health serious and staff. Population dynamics, the three majority of components of which are mortality, fertility and growth, offer a field of investigation in common with health. This is particularly so because health and population dynamics fall within the framework of development planning, and influence the various strategies adopted in national development plans.
