Medact’s blog brings together the online health community. We blog our own pieces as well as co-host articles written by other bloggers who work on the issues of poverty, violence, injustice and inequality.

The views expressed here are the personal views of authors, and the content does not reflect the official position of Medact. However, discussion generated here may be used to influence the development of organisational policy.
