The 1978 Declaration of Alma-Ata recognizes that primary health care and health for all by the year 2000, must evolve from and reflect the economic conditions and the sociocultural and political characteristics of the country and its communities. Given the proper knowledge, skills, and attitudes, Islam-oriented health educators and promoters who appreciate the Qur'anic teachings and Prophetic Medicine and Practices can serve better as modern agents for change in Muslim communities. They con easily, mediate social changes and facilitate behavioral modifications, and can adapt, transfer and adopt traditional teachings into modern primary health care.
