If you're looking to do something a little more interesting on your next break, check out the great list of international health opportunities at the AMSA website.

One organization that we particularly like is Dr. Paul Farmer’s Partners in Health. It calls its mission “both medical and moral.” “When a person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH uses all of the means at our disposal to make them well—from pressuring drug manufacturers, to lobbying policy makers, to providing medical care and social services. Whatever it takes. Just as we would do if a member of our own family—or we ourselves—were ill.”

PIH has been deeply involved in helping Haitians after the devastating earthquake and is also working currently in Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Rwanda, Lesotho, Burundi, and Russia.
