The World Health Report 2006 - Working together for health
The World Health Report 2006 - Working together for health contains an expert assessment of the current crisis in the global health workforce and ambitious proposals to tackle it over the next ten years, starting immediately. The report reveals an estimated shortage of almost 4.3 million doctors, midwives, nurses and support workers worldwide. The shortage is most severe in the poorest countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, where health workers are most needed. Focusing on all stages of the health workers' career lifespan from entry to health training, to job recruitment through to retirement, the report lays out a ten-year action plan in which countries can build their health workforces, with the support of global partners.
PROPER FOOD HANDLING
Wash hands thoroughly
Keep raw and cooked food apart at all times. In particular keep raw meat, fish, poultry and other raw foods away from cooked foods and ready-to-eat foods (such as salads, bread and sandwiches).
Wash and dry hands, utensils – including chopping boards and knives – and surfaces thoroughly after preparing raw foods.
Never put cooked food onto a plate which has previously held these raw foods until it has been thoroughly washed.
Do not use the same utensil to stir or serve a cooked meal that was used to prepare the raw ingredients.
Wash thoroughly root vegetables (carrots, potatoes, etc.) and other fruits and vegetables to be eaten raw.
Avoid preparing food for yourself or others if you are ill, especially with vomiting and/or diarrhoea.
Proper storage of food is an important part of reducing the risk of food poisoning. Some foods must be stored in the fridge and eaten within a short space of time; other foods, such as flour, pulses, canned foods and many others last much longer and can be stored at room temperature. But even dried foods have limits on their storage time. So watch out for storage instructions and make sure you always store foods:
in the right place
at the right temperature
for the right time.

"We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the foundation of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer "Tomorrow". His name is "Today"." Gabriela Mistral, 1948
