Abstract: First paragraph: In tackling. . .world health problems, the workforce goal is simple – to get the right workers with the right skills in the right places doing the right things (WHO, 2006). International health aid communities are involved actively in addressing health challenges world wide, specifically focusing on achievement of the United Nations (1990) Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The goals in relation to health are aimed at reducing maternal and child mortality rates, improving mental health, reducing HIV/AIDS and combating communicable diseases and malaria by 2015. Inequalities between the developed world and countries of lower economic resource are vast (World Bank, 2002).
