At HEAL, we believe health is achievable for even the most vulnerable populations in our world when we apply principles of equity, justice, and solidarity.
Front line health professionals are natural advocates of poor patients and have a meaningful role in achieving health equity. Much of our training in our health education schools does not give us the expertise to serve underserved populations. The HEAL community aims to mold ourselves personally and professionally to embody the values of service and solidarity with underserved patients. A transnational and inter-professional community of like-minded health professionals allows us to create the space to learn from each other to better serve marginalized populations.
