This paper explains that, although the Republic of Mauritius has advanced in some areas of economic and social development, the area of health and safety regulations in schools still need to be improved. Next, the author provides background information about Mauritius, the working of the U.N. Development Assistance program and the qualitative literature review methodology used in this study. The paper concludes that earlier food and drug acts in the Republic of Mauritius, which were once appropriate, are now out of date and require changes in the food control system in schools especially in the areas of technology, administration and enforcement.

From the Paper:

"Universal access to primary health care has been accomplished in Mauritius. The island's small size is characterized by a transport network that is comprehensive in nature and services have been decentralized in order to facilitate transportation. Problem areas include the Infant Mortality Rates (IMR) fell drastically from 32.3 per thousand in 1980 to 18 per thousand in 1994 however, the IMR is stated to have "remained stagnant at 19.4 per thousand since 1995" as well as has the incidence of low birth weight babies remained high in Mauritius. Health services are feeling the pressure and facing challenges due to a population that is aging rapidly and the change of life styles as women are entering the workforce at a high rate."
