Imagine not being able to go to the doctor when you're unwell or to the dentist when you have a toothache. This is the reality many people in India and other developing countries face today. They simply don't have access to everyday health services that most Australians for granted.
For as little as $5, you can provide spectacles to someone who can't see or a dental appointment for someone with a toothache.
Equal Health provides free health care to people in need in developing countries. These health services (such as optical, dental, allied health and medical) make a lasting difference to people's lives.
They bring sight to the blind, relief from dental pain and improved health through access to everyday health services.
This is made possible by the hundreds of Australian health professional volunteers who donate their time, skills and resources to participate in short-term international assignments in developing countries.
There is a problem however, with large crowds attending Equal Health's make shift clinics in remote villages, in community halls or even under the shade of a tree, many people are unable to be treated.
