Development assistance, Health, Education in Bhutan



Bhutan is, according to the parameter of per-capita-income, one of the poorest countries in the world. But fortunately, it does not know the urban poverty of the slums of many developing countries. It is an advantage for the development of Bhutan that its population has been growing slowly in the past and still is relatively small.

The still predominant traditional agrarian structure of the society results in the vast majority of Bhutanese belonging, in one way or the other, to an intact farming family, thus having at least a minimum of protection.

On the other hand, international development assistance is of great importance. The main donor is the large neighbour India. Also Japan and a number of smaller European countries contribute Technical Assistance through know-how-transfer by expatriate experts and donation of equipment.

Initiatives for private assistance like the activities of “Pro Bhutan Association”, the German NGO most present on Bhutan, are of relatively high importance and well
appreciated by H.M. the King, the Royal Government and the population of Bhutan benefiting from the various “Pro Bhutan” projects.
