An enormous portion of the world population does not have access to proper healthcare. We want to change that...
Imagine waiting hours or even days at a clinic for treatment only to find out that the facility does not have the expertise you need. The nearest cardiologist, neurologist or pediatric surgeon that can help you or your child is hundreds of miles away, and your only means of transportation is on foot or bicycle.
The extreme shortage of healthcare providers is a global crisis. Access to healthcare should not be determined by where you were born. Accelerating progress towards health for all requires equitable access to health workers. We need a cost-effective solution that can provide medical presence 24 hours/day, 365 days/year, wherever it is needed.
We have a rare opportunity to truly make a sustainable difference in the lives of others. Through our partners InTouch Health, Direct Relief and numerous humanitarian physicians who volunteer their time and expertise, we are able to do just that. I cannot applaud our partners’ generosity and commitment enough.
We aim to revolutionize global healthcare by providing quality medical expertise where and when it is needed. We can improve health and well-being for patients in these vulnerable communities and simultaneously provide training for on-site clinicians.
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as Executive Director of World Telehealth Initiative. I invite you to join us in this effort!
