Pathologists and lab professionals in global health are working to achieve health equity for all people worldwide. But what does that look like in practice? What challenges do global health advocates face, and what resources do they need to do their work? Which factors influence their ability to help build sustainable health delivery systems in places where people currently lack access to care?
