Treating Yaws among the Aka Pygmies: Episode 1

 

The Aka Pygmy communities living in the northern Congo have been ostracised in their home country for many years. They have almost no access to healthcare and, as a result, are still affected by a neglected disease: yaws.  MSF recently carried out a campaign for treating this disease, which turned out to be both a logistical feat and a world first in medical terms.

Episode 1 of 6; new episodes coming soon.
