Celebrating our Local Staff this World Health Day

World Health Day

This World Health Day we’d like to acknowledge the local staff from the five countries we’re currently operating in who make our programs possible. These are people who work continuously to provide free, high standard care to their communities and strengthen health access in their home countries.
