This is Emilien. He’s a doctor at the district hospital in Angsongo, Mali. He’s also something of a miracle worker. Despite having to deal with chronic staff shortages, insufficient funding, a lack of water, and a sporadic electricity supply, since arriving at this rural hospital he’s helped make major inroads into some serious local health problems. “We’ve eradicated meningitis and whooping cough in my village,” he says, “and you can count the number of measles cases on one hand. I know change is possible – that’s what motivates me and gives me hope.”
