Healthcare is one of the most important, and yet disparate elements of societies around the world.

As travelers we often need access to healthcare on the road, and end up coming away with new perspectives on healthcare via our experiences of how healthcare systems work in other states or countries.

These ground level experiences and perspectives help inform our ongoing conversation on how healthcare can be improved around the world.
