|Victorine and her caregiver niece|
Victorine is the lady with HIV and TB who had a hemoglobin of 2.5. After 4 units of blood she was sitting up in bed today and told me she was "as strong as a lion". We are all more optimistic with her prognosis today.
|A Day in the Out Patient Department|
I saw another lady today from the capital Yaoundé who chooses to spend 6 hours traveling one way here for her HIV meds. She tried getting care there but frequently spent all day at a clinic there without seeing a doctor. I was happy to see her but it is a shame care is not easily available at the government facilities in the 2 largest cities.
