Why Global Health?
30,000 children die everyday from preventable illnesses! That is NOT ok! I understand that the healthcare system in the U.S. is not completely up to par, but anyone in the U.S. can walk into an ER and be treated, regardless of wealth or status. This is not the case in the developing world. Many people do not even have access to a health center. Many people carry sick loved ones miles to receive care. Many women deliver babies by themselves and do not know how to handle complications. If we can help even a small percentage of those people, we will have succeeded. We cannot do everything, but everyone can do something!
