Abstract

Health systems struggle to keep up with overwhelming new health challenges.1 Beside financial constraints, public expectations and technological advancement of health service, the other biggest challenge faced by healthcare systems in both the developed and developing world is the high prevalence of non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. In the developing world in particular, health systems have responded to these challenges by placing additional demands on health workers 1 and by admonishing health care providers for not being appropriately educated. It is unacceptable to blindly blame health professionals while ignoring the shortcomings of the health education system.2
