Barry, et al. analyze Zimbabwe (formerly Southern Rhodesia) as a regional role model to assess the impact on health care of the transition to independence and black majority rule. Colonized by the British in 1890, Zimbabwe gained independence and majority rule in 1980. The authors describe health care under colonialism and outline the changes that have come about since 1980 in health policy, in the health care sector, and in the health status of the black population, especially women and infants. They also describe the socioeconomic and political factors that challenge the postindependence government's goal of achieving equality in health care and health status between blacks and whites, and between urban and rural dwellers.
