dc.descriptionWhat can be done to achieve adequate health care for the huge numbers of people in the world who now receive little or none? While a person in Britain receives more doctor-care in a year than the average Ethiopian can expect in a lifetime, what kind of health programmes are needed to bridge the gap? And how much longer can Britain expect to rely on transfusions of medical manpower from developing countries whose need for improved health services is much more basic than our own? The debate in Britain about the future of the National Health Service has _ its parallel also at the international level. The Doctor-Go-Round explores the links between m the two and offers some conclusions about the future direction of UK policy.en_US
