This campaign has been started by a group of enthousiastic doctors with a joint passion for international healthcare. Most of them work or have worked as global health doctor or are training to get there. In their daily jobs they have been confronted with the inequity in access to and quality of healthcare. They have worked in different countries and have experience in collaborating with local colleagues from different cultures and different healthcare systems. Their experiences have convinced them that global health doctors can contribute to better healthcare, both in The Netherlands as well as internationally.
