According to various reports, the healthcare system in the country remains deficient in meeting the needs of the population. This is because of many co-related factors, however, most likely one is the shortage of skilled manpower.
The industry which requires extreme precision and accuracy at all levels of the healthcare systems must move towards the larger goal of Universal Health Coverage. This is where the Allied health professionals bridge this gap. These individuals are involved in the delivery of health or related services, with expertise in preventive, diagnostic, curative, therapeutic and/or rehabilitative interventions. Allied health professionals are trained to handle specific health problems and provide their services in their area of expertise through comprehensive assessment and diagnosis and/or treatment to promote recovery and advance the quality of life.
