  • Description
    "This paper presents a framework for the health system with health workers at the core. We review existing health-system frameworks and the role they assign to health workers. Earlier frameworks either do not include health workers as a central feature of system functioning or treat them as one among several components of equal importance. As every function of the health system is either undertaken by or mediated through the health worker, we place the health worker at the center of the health system." (extract from abstract)
