World Health Organisation and medical students: is there any room for improvement?

As a medical student already for six years, I have realized that it is not enough just to read everything that crosses us about medicine and absorb all this information as a sponge but what matter is how you relation what you have read with the diary live from this career; it is not enough to know how HIV is transmitted between people but to apply this knowledge to teach society the complications of this disease, especially its prevention and not exclude people who unfortunately already suffer from it.

It is very easy to be methodical and store everything as robots but there is the difference, we are, although future doctors, we are especially humans that feel and we realize the problems of our environment, the shortcomings, defects, which are the virtues of our community and this is well known by WHO so much that the main of its values is the definition of health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”Although in my personal case, I do not think that health is an easy word to define but I think this definition is one of the most accurate. As a young person who still has a long way to read, learn and apply in life I see in the WHO a door more accessible to the knowledge about the medicine to which we have not yet finished come in and observe all its advantages, this is where the young people will play a very important role contributing to join it with the experience and knowledge previously shaped as research to provide new medical studies to help us in the future, both health professionals and others, to forge a better society full of peace and physical and mental security.
