Childhood Malnutrition: Community-Based Care and Support – Part 1
There is no greater challenge to child survival in the developing world than malnutrition. Managing malnutrition is outside the realm of normal practice for healthcare professionals trained in western countries. As such, it needs to be something health professionals planning to work in the developing world context need to review regularly.
Asking Myself the Right Questions About Becoming a Medical Missionary
Success is never something the Lord demands. Perhaps Mother Theresa defined the Lords perspective best. She said, “God does not require we be successful, only that we be faithful”. This is clearly the definition of success on the mission field, being faithful to the Lord’s call, following him in obedience, around the corner or around the world.

When Healthcare Hurts
When Healthcare Hurts is an evidence-based, critical look at the potential promise and perils of global health initiatives. Greg Seager, Founder and CEO of Christian Health Service Corps, asks thought-provoking questions about global health projects that can illuminate areas of needed improvement and uncover some of our own harmful biases. Mr. Seager draws from scholarly research, WHO, UNICEF, and other authoritative sources to compose six best practice guidelines in global health. The combination of real-world case studies and the author’s wealth of experience makes this book a must-read for anyone serving in short or long-term global health initiatives.
