Health workers and the MDGs: inextricably linked
Article by Dr Mubashar Sheikh, published in the Commonwealth Ministers Reference Book 2012
Dr Sheikh details the steps governments can take to improve the critical lack of health workers.
Extract: "Among the countries suffering from severe shortages of health workers, nearly one-third are members of the Commonwealth, and few are making progress with the international health targets. The situation can be reversed. Solutions require multi-sectoral and inter-sectoral collective action with the committed engagement of diverse stakeholders underpinned by unshakeable government support."
