World healthcare: three amazing maps

with 6 comments

Check out these stunning images from Kirstyn E’s Global Health Equity: A Night With Dr. Paul Farmer. You’ll see maps of the world with nations adjusted by size to show the world by population, then the world by AIDS virus, then the world by access to physician. Hold on to your hat.

1. The world by population:

2. The world by AIDS:

3. The world by access to physicians:

Word by access to physician

Wouldn’t you think that healthcare would go where the sickness is?
No so. Like most things, in a world yearning for justice, it goes mainly to where the money is.

There’s work to be done. Don’t give up!

A dedicated circle of transformed nonconformists

with one comment

giannakali at BipolarBlast found this home-run from Martin Luther King:

clipped from
“This hour in history needs a dedicated circle of transformed nonconformists. Our planet teeters on the brink of annihilation; dangerous passions of pride, hatred, and selfishness are enthroned in our lives; and men do reverence before false gods of nationalism and materialism. The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.”

—Martin Luther King, Jr.
