Petrina didn’t know which was worse, the constant itching that covered her body or the pain in her stomach. Both plagued her as she struggled to complete her everyday tasks. When her stomach pains became severe, she was forced to immediately leave her work and lay down.
Should she visit the healthcare center again? It would steal away precious hours of her day just to walk there and back. And would it even do any good? They had given her ointment for what they called some sort of skin allergy, but it had done nothing to relieve the itching or the irritation. Any medicine they had for her gastric issues would likely have a similar result. Would she ever get relief?
Isolated from Help
In Petrina’s remote village in the shadows of Mount Everest, inadequate health care is like an epidemic. But it isn’t limited to her small corner of the globe. Half of the world’s population lacks access to essential health services. Far too many people in Petrina’s village had suffered from conditions that were curable because proper treatment was unavailable…
