Remote Area Medical (RAM), a traveling collective of volunteer medical practitioners, was set up in 1985 by British expatriate Stan Brock, who wanted to take medical care to those who were too poor, or live in areas too remote, to otherwise access it.
What Brock and his volunteers do is nothing short of miraculous.
At the same time, for a country which can spend billions to pursue wars without end, this is an absolute moral outrage, to say nothing of a colossal embarrassment for US government.
The legislation currently before congress is not the way to fix this.
But other countries, like Belgium, have managed to make sure that their people can access care when they need it, without breaking the national bank; why can't the US?!?
