Global Partners. Global Movement!
VAW Global’s TeleHealth program gives professionals from LMICs the opportunity to share their expertise on a global scale. Our global partners in telehealth are local physicians who practice in their communities. Too often, professionals from LMICs are not included in conversations about healthcare and their voices are rarely listened to when policy is made. VAW Global’s Telehealth program is giving physicians around the world opportunities to share their expertise, have their voices heard, and be a part of a global movement.
Together we can fund access to equitable healthcare around the world.
Why the VAW Global Telehealth Program is important and unique?
