Welcome to Worldwide Med. This site is a not-for-profit reference site for patients, Doctors, family members and more. I started this site after witnessing firsthand the numerous language and cultural barriers that can delay effective healthcare treatment for patients who may not be familiar with why or how treatments are being administered. The goal of this site is to help patients and family members understand in a cultural, religious and linguistic context, the treatments that they may be administered. I believe that the more we understand why medicine works, the less mysterious it may seem. I additionally believe that if Doctors know more about how medicine fits into different cultures and religions, they will be better able to communicate with and treat their patience will respecting their beliefs. This website is not written with any religion or cultural biases in mind, and considers all cultures, religions and people, equally deserving of respect and empathy.
