As the world continues to advance and progress towards a better future in the medical field, there are many developing regions such as Africa, the Middle East, and SouthEast Asia that are not as advantaged.
A recent report by the World Health Organisation (WHO) stated that at least half the world’s population still do not have full coverage of essential health services. The WHO released its latest report carried out in 2015 showing there were 214 million cases of Malaria in that year alone with 88% of it to have occurred in Africa and 10% in South East Asia. This is just an example of the numerous preventable diseases that are affecting the health of many due to poverty as a result of natural disasters and conflict.
Human Appeal Australia recognises this problem and has an established comprehensive medical program that is implemented by our field offices and partners.
