The mission of our Global Health division is to connect AMWA resident members with resources for service and advocacy in global health.
According to the World Health Organization, “health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of infirmity.”
Global Health implies “consideration of the health needs of the people of the whole planet above the concerns of particular nations.”
We at AMWA Global Health are committed to empowering female residents to aid under-served communities throughout the world and to advocate for better health practices in any community where there is a need.
