ABSTRACT
The article reviews the international issues related deficit in access of care related to pediatric rheumatology, and proposes medical policy solutions for these barriers. It states that in the current priorities of pediatric global health include mortality and impact of poverty on medical access. The global focus on musculoskeletal diseases is low because global mortality by these diseases among pediatric age group comprises 0.1 percent of total mortality, and low prevalence. It examines the demands for pediatric rheumatology workforce, and states that global deficit of health care providers and human resources is caused by insufficient workforce production, low retention of workers in specific medical areas, disparity and poor management of both health workforce and health care systems.
