In the 1990s, as a response to rapid urbanization, there were a number of large, urban health initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa. Most tended to be comprehensive as opposed to selective in scope: they aimed at strengthening the health system as a whole, and placed emphasis on delivering improved services at the primary level, with increased community participation. A multi-dimensional approach is required to assess the achievements of such initiatives.
