In a remarkable presentation to the Internet-based global “human values” exchange platform, TEDx, Heart of Australia Founder/CEO, Dr Rolf Gomes, has issued his own challenge to medical science and its practitioners in our world.
Citing the acclaimed success of India’s decades-long determination to end the scourge of polio, he says it’s time to – “not just develop new treatments, but to find effective ways of delivering those treatments to those who need it – by whatever means, not just trucks but by trucks, planes, boats, telemedicine, armies of volunteers … mobility of medicine for the masses.
“And why? Because every life counts”.
