Health workers are becoming increasingly aware of the fact that, although their work is most often of a highly specialized nature, to obtain lasting results and progress in any aspect of individual, family and community improvement there is the need for conceiving their action within a much larger programme of social and economic development. The treatment and prevention of illness and the improvement of health of the individual or of the community as a whole cannot be fully effective and lasting unless there is a consistent economic and social development. Thus, it is fully recognized that undertakings such as malaria eradication, strengthening of the health services, health education and all other activities in the field of health must be part of a progression which involve also such programmes as education, development of agricultural services, welfare services, industrialization improvements in housing, transportation and communications.
