Sierra Leone: Treating Children with Malaria
February 1, 2008
Pediatrician Leo Ho worked in the intensive care unit of the MSF-run Gondama Hospital in the Bo region of Sierra Leone in 2007. During his assignment, Dr. Ho was continually treating the most severe malaria cases: children brought to the hospital who had already fallen into a coma; those who were severely malnourished; or also suffering from tuberculosis or HIV/AIDS. “We were just trying to keep them alive,” says Dr. Ho.
