The world is becoming smaller and smaller every day. A clichéd saying perhaps, but acutely true when it comes to healthcare. Countries, cultures, and communities are increasingly intertwined via travel and migration. The burden of disease in one country can, in a matter of hours, become the burden of disease in a country on the opposite side of the world. As such, developing sustainable local medical practices around the world is ever more critical as we seek to promote healthy lives for all people.
