So far working at Masaiti Health Center has been a humbling experience, exposing me to the health disparities and practical realities of a resource limited world. I have already witnessed the devastating effects of malaria and HIV/AIDS on the local population. It is very disheartening to see preventable diseases affect such a large amount of people, especially the youth.
However, the INMED International Public Health Hybrid course has prepared me for this low resource community. I have been working alongside clinical officers and staff to address these health disparities and to educate the community about disease prevention. I would recommend this service learning training site to everyone! -Robert Tung
