How can individual health care practitioners such as paramedics, nurses and midwives, and various professional organisations, work to improve the overall health of people in poor countries and poor people in rich countries?
Health workers are stated to be all people engaged

the factors influencing health lie outside the immediate reach and traditional remit of the health system– early-years experiences, education, working life, income and living and environmental conditions.
