According to the authors the purpose of the manual under review is “to offer health planners and administrators a set of procedure for managing—that is planning and carrying out health projects.” They define a health project as “temporary intensive effort to set up and put into operation a new or revised service (or program) that will, it is believed, result in the reduction of specific health and health related problems.” This review will keep the purpose and the •definition, as given by the authors, under constant reference while pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of the manual.
