Health equity, to me, is every individual on this planet enjoying good health and having the knowledge of how to access health care when they need it, irregardless of their ethnicity, socio-demographic or economic status.

Priscilla Kapombe hails from Lusaka, Zambia. She is passionate about health research, as she believes it is the best way to promote more proactive health solutions.
