About the organizers: Halad to Health is based in Australia but was born out of the call-for-help from an under-resourced community hospital in Bukidnon. Closing the gap in health inequality, Halad to Health provides free health education and services, starting with some of the most disadvantaged communities in Bukidnon, usually via 2-week mission trips where Australian Medical Student-Volunteers would teach relevant health topics at local schools and health facilities.
