She’s empowering people with disabilities to engage, to be aware of their rights, whether that’s in employment, in making health services more disability-friendly, or in getting people with disabilities at the forefront of planning,”
Antony Duttine, Advisor, Disability and Rehabilitation for the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO)
All people and communities should have access to health care wherever they are and whenever they need it, regardless of their financial circumstances. This means involving all sectors of society to fight poverty, social injustice, educational gaps and poor living conditions, which are among the factors that influence people’s health.”
Anselm Hennis, director of PAHO’s Department of Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health

Erin Brown often thinks of her mother, a vibrant woman who lost her life to lupus in 1998. From the ages of 12 to 17, Erin watched her mother fight cancer until her last breath. So when Erin learned in 2004 that she also had been diagnosed with a serious disease, advanced osteosarcoma, she prepared herself for a battle.
