Extras actress Ashley Jensen visits Indian health clinic
There is a warning that the lives of hundreds of millions of children across the world are being put at risk by a shortage of health workers.
Save the Children says millions in Africa and Asia die every year from preventable diseases like pneumonia and diarrhoea because they never get to see a doctor or nurse.
The charity is calling on world leaders gathering for the UN General Assembly in New York to tackle what it says is a global shortfall of health workers.
Actress Ashley Jensen has been to India and told Radio 5 live Breakfast about seing the situation first hand.
