This book takes a critical look at state of health affairs across the globe, giving information on poverty, health disparities, ethics and much more. Through the author's personal travels and observations, along with facts and figures on these subjects, the need for medical volunteering becomes even more enforced. The author works to explain the component "forces of disparity", including racism, sexism, history, trade, unequal economic growth, the problems of foreign aid, infectious disease/AIDS, and many other factors. Also included are inspirational in-depth profiles of seven exemplary health providers who have dedicated their lives to service.
