This report outlines three necessary steps to meet the health MDGs.

1) Developing countries should take the lead and own the solutions, and should be supported by international, national and local partnerships based on mutual respect.

The UK and other developed countries should grasp the opportunity – and see themselves as having a responsibility as global employers – to support a massive scaling-up of training, education and employment of health workers in developing countries

There should be much more rigorous research and evaluation of what works, systematic spreading of good practice, greater use of new information, communication and biomedical technologies, and closer links with economic development.
