BORDERLESS HEALTH CARE: COVID-19 RESPONSES

While you may live in a region where medical care is available, the reality is that this is not the case for hundreds of millions of people. In some cases, it is a matter of accessibility and not availability. Although health services are available, there are obstacles to access them. These obstacles seem to be even more pronounced today, as the world is facing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of the factors that prevent people from having access to health care are poverty, geography, religious or political affiliation, military conflict, or environmental catastrophe. 

In some instances, local governments are to blame, while in other cases systemic issues of racism, gender bias, or mere physical access to a healthcare facility/practitioner is simply not an option.

To address these issues, in the month of April Kutoa will be supporting local organizations that are striving to make health care accessible to all people, especially during the COVID-19 global pandemic. At Kutoa, we believe that people everywhere matter. So an imaginary line ought not to determine if someone can access the healthcare they need. Be sure to spread the word and vote. Together we can help make healthcare possible for those who don’t.
