Health education is the way to a better worldWritten by IVD team
Health education is the way to a better world. Providers are scarce and populations are rising exponentially. So as a physician, with some of my colleagues, we decided that a good way to counter this situation is by giving the usual health care recipients an opportunity to be a part of their own care by giving them proper information in laymen terms and their native language. We did so in the event of the Chikungunya outbreak that hit Haiti in mid 2014 by doing presentations and sharing guidelines through social media. We founded a non profit organization to make sure our volunteering brings about sustainable change for the Haitian population.
