NPR Blog Examines Global Health Service Partnership

September 27, 2012

NPR's "Shots" blog profiles Vanessa Kerry, a physician and daughter of Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), and her work to develop the Global Health Service Partnership to send nurses and doctors to work abroad in exchange for a pay-down in their student loans. The partnership's goal "is to reduce the severe shortage of medical workers in developing countries," according to the blog, which adds Kerry "thinks the partnership will also strengthen health care here stateside by infusing U.S. doctors with a worldview centered on making the most of available resources." The program is working with the Peace Corps and receives funding through PEPFAR, the blog notes (Doucleff, 9/26).
