Review for MEDICAL EDUCATION COOPERATION WITH CUBA, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

MEDICC allows us to cross the political divide between the US and Cuba, so that health professionals and all Americans working towards better health and health equity can share experiences with Cuban colleagues and communities, and also bring back lessons from the Cuban experience--a country that has the lowest infant mortality in the developing world and many health indicators on par with the US at a fraction of th cost. MEDICC also publishes MEDICC Review, indexed in Medline and Thomson/Reuters, the only English-language journal regularly featuring results of Cuban research on health strategies, new vaccines and medicines, and clinical findings--and the journal publishes other authors mainly from developing countries. MEDICC is unique, effective, and worth supporting.

Review for Global Links, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Global Links lives up to its name: it links vital supplies to hospitals in need in Latin America and the Caribbean that come from hospitals in the USA that would otherwise simply throw them away. In the process, Global Links very consciously contributes to the greening of our US hospitals and clinics!
As a person who has donated to Global Links, I do so because they also work with nearly 2,000 volunteers annually, and not only use their skills and hours, but also educate them about global health and the environment.
Finally, Global Links cooperates fully with its partner hospitals, other non-profits, and the Pan American Health Organization. Bravo!

Role:  Donor & I donated to Global Links, and head an organization that partners with Global Links.
