“For the Church’s part, important above all seems to be the work of the more organic investigation of the increasingly complex problems which the health care workers must face in the context of a greater commitment to collaboration among groups and corresponding activities. Today there are many organisms which directly engage Christians in the health care sector: over and above the religious congregations and institutions, with their social health care structures, there are organizations of Catholic doctors, associations of paramedics, nurses, pharmacists, volunteer workers, diocesan and inter-diocesan, national and international organisms which have sprung up to pursue the problems of medicine and health. A better coordination of all these organisms is required.”
