As an integral part of the Doctor Lync initiative we're working to establish a network of rural Partner Clinics to provide medical care and training through an integrated service of telemedicine, education, consultation, and other Doctor Lync assets.
1/2 THE WORLD LACKS ACCESS TO BASIC HEALTHCARE
Getting basic healthcare remains out of reach for most of the world's poor because of issues of accessibility and affordability.
Overburdened hospitals, low-quality care, inadequate medical facilities, lack of health and hygiene awareness, and poor sanitation practices compound the problems of the poor.
Half of the world’s population has no access to basic healthcare.
One billion people around the world cannot afford the health care services which they need.
There are wide gaps in the availability of services in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia.
In other regions, basic health care services such as family planning and infant immunization are becoming more available, but lack of financial protection means increasing financial distress for families as they pay for these services out of their own pockets.
