How missionaries are changing medicine

Medical missionaries have been at the forefront of a number of innovations in medicine and public health. Why? Because we are in the most needy places, working on multicultural teams, learning from local people, and get immediate feedback on what works and what does not work. The drawback to all this is that we tend to get absorbed into the work — the workload is beyond what anyone is able to bear; thus we frequently do not have the margin to create and publish. It’s an amazing challenge. Want to help us change the world?
