The Wall Chart on Basic Social Services for All (BSSA) was produced under the auspices of the ACC Task Force on Basic Social Services for All (TFBSSA) as one of the follow-up activities of the recent United Nations global conferences and summits, particularly: the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD) (Cairo, 1994), the World Summit for Social Development (WSSD) (Copenhagen, 1995), the Fourth World Conference on Women (FWCW) (Beijing, 1995) and the Second World Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) (Istanbul, 1996).

The Wall Chart on Basic Social Services for All presents the currently available national statistics in six key areas identified by the Task Force. The Chart delineates where countries are presently and summarizes below the key relevant goals agreed upon at the United Nations conferences. The six key areas are:

  1. population, with special emphasis on reproductive health and family planning services
  2. primary health care
  3. nutrition
  4. basic education
  5. drinking water and sanitation
  6. shelter
