Good health is a pre-requisite for community development and alleviation of poverty.  In our world of growing inequality, it has become even more imperative that students studying within health fields have both professional and cultural competencies. Our Community Health Education learning journeys take university nursing, midwifery and medicine students into hands-on and faculty led journeys.
