"I’ve never felt much pressure in that, just a lot of aching hope." I think that's my new goal; I sometimes feel a lot of pressure. Thank you for sharing!

Wow. I don't have a medical background, but I was volunteering in northern Ghana for several months, and had several opportunities to contribute to individual medical care: an (unsuccessful) brain cancer operation for a 9 year old girl (may she rest in peace), malaria and typhoid medication for a few friends who couldn't afford it, and antibiotics (or pain relief?) for a boy who stepped on a nail. And I worried about the same complexities as you did! Thank you for taking the time, effort, and resources to complete this project and share it with us.

I met a group of nurses, who are teaching First Aid to people, the way we do in North America... do you see that as something that could be more cost-effective?
