Heroes for Health

Health workers are among the unsung heroes of our time. They work long hours in difficult conditions, often with little reward and sometimes at risk to their own health. Despite this, they are totally committed to looking after the patients under their care. Without the devotion of health workers, public health services in Asia would be in crisis and would not be able to cope with the ever-growing burden of disease.
