Abstract:   (5411 Views)

Objective(s): To identify community views on the role of physicians and health specialists on people's health.
Methods: This was a nationwide cross sectional study. A random sample of 27883 individuals aged between 18 and 65 years were entered into the study. Each respondent  was asked to indicate the role that health professionals play in the public community health.
Results:  In all, 45.2 % of the respondents indicated that health professionals had very influence in shaping public community health while only 1.8 % of people believed “they have no role”. However, about 30 % of people indicated a limited role for health professionals.
