The Patient Becomes the Healer


Francis Gatluak was one of the first people MSF ever treated for kala azar, a neglected disease also known as visceral leishmaniasis. When Francis became better, he stayed at the hospital and began working with MSF, first as a translator, and then he began to learn how to provide treatment.
