Global Health Resources
This section of the Virginia AAP website is intended to be a resource for residents and practicing pediatricians in all specialties who are interested in global health work. The resources can serve as a starting point or provide resources for future short or long term efforts in global health. Information on pharmaceutical resources, local groups working in the global health field, and travel information will be helpful for those planning for international medical trips in the near future. For both those with fast approaching plans as well as those with more distant goals, the educational resources listed will help prepare you for your experience by providing knowledge and ideas not common to our everyday practice.
Hopefully, in the future, we can add to these resources to support global health education for those interested. Resources include educational program links (some free and some for fee depending on the organization), links to different organization websites including that for the AAP section on Global Health, links to funding sponsors as well as donation options for those needing medications at low or no cost for upcoming trips. Also there are links to connect interested individuals with the numerous organizations with headquarters within the state of Virginia who do great international work. This website is a growing effort and suggestions are welcome for additional resources.
