In June 2018 I set off on a journey of a lifetime – 5-week trip around Southeast Asia. I visited Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam where I learnt about local approach to medicine and the wide range of clinical conditions most commonly dealt with in this region of the world. Through interaction with local communities I explored why health inequalities still exist in Southeast Asia and how local healthcare standards could be improved. Thanks to this exceptionally eye-opening experience, I developed empathy for cultures that have less resources and appreciated the importance of basic healthcare that everyone should be entitled to.
