Millions of people do not have access basic healthcare, which presents difficulties in combating preventable illnesses – even the flu. Supporting global health means improving health and achieving equity in health for all. Global health can also strengthen national security, as doctors are given the right means to help fight infectious diseases before they reach our shores.
Here’s how you can make an impact:
- $50 provides an hour of medical research.
- $65 vaccinates a single person to prevent or fight off malaria.
- $100 buys three first-aid kits, 24 blankets, and 10 surgical scissors used for basic and emergency health care.
