Healthcare is a human right that too many are denied. At HEAL, we strive to change that everyday.
Through a community of action we are building a world where the best health workers serve the poorest communities.
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.
The HEAL Initiative strives to embody these Values and Principles:
Responding to Structural Violence
Transforming through Community
Work is Everywhere
