In his speech on 'Poverty, Health and the Human Future', delivered at the World Health Assembly in Geneva, Dr. Jim Kim introduced "science of delivery" as a new field that the World Bank Group is helping to shape, in response to country demand. It builds on our decades of experience working with countries to improve services for poor people. As this field matures, it will mean that frontline development workers will have better tools and faster access to knowledge to provide better programs for people.
Increasingly, national leaders, development partners and citizens understand that, to achieve bold development goals, countries must focus relentlessly on delivery. A movement to transform delivery in development is gaining momentum worldwide, yet many of the concrete steps required to translate this commitment into action remain to be defined. The workshop in Seoul will contribute to setting this agenda for the months and years ahead.
The Seoul workshop brings together distinguished representatives of governments, development agencies and private firms on the cutting edge of delivery. The quality of participants makes me confident that this event will mark a milestone in translating the emergent science of delivery into practical action to help countries reach their development aims, and vulnerable people change their lives.
