Meanwhile in Niger

Still haven't heard from an independent source about yesterday's post on malnutrition in Maradi, Niger. But the video below gives you a sense of conditions in Niger. It's from a new series on global health called ‘Survival’ that is currently airing on BBC World News.

The focus in the Niger piece is on what's going right in the battle against various neglected tropical diseases. And it features local villages distributing medications in places where there aren't enough nurses and doctors to do so.
