Each year a theme is selected for World Health Day that highlights a priority area of public health concern. This year, the focus is on hypertension, known more commonly as high blood pressure.
This photo shows our CEO, Meridith, on a recent trip to Guatemala, where she got to see firsthand how the blood pressure cuffs MedShare shipped to a hospital were being used to monitor pregnant women, and were truly making a difference in the lives of people everyday. A blood pressure cuff is something so simple – and yet, it’s a truly lifesaving tool for a hypertensive mother-to-be.
MedShare views World Health Day as a celebration of what we have accomplished, and a time to focus on how we can do even more in the future.
