Health for All –Online Exhibit from the National Library of Medicine

HEALTH FOR ALL
A revolution in global health is taking place in villages and towns around the world. Communities, in collaboration with scientists, advocates, governments, and international organizations, are taking up the challenge to prevent disease and improve quality of life.

Recognizing all the factors that cause illness, they are working on a wide range of issues—from community health to conflict, disease to discrimination. The people who face these problems play an important role in their resolution, and each of us can participate in the search for solutions. As we learn more about the challenges of the past, we join a growing community of people committed to global health.

As the stories here show, we can draw upon a legacy of success, often based on the simplest means. Collectively, we can make a world of difference.
