David is blogging from Paoua Democratic Republic of Congo, where the MSF hospital is the only inpatient hospital in a region roughly twice the size of Massachusetts. Transportation barriers abound with limited access to motor vehicles and variable road conditions during the nine month rainy season. Patients may travel for days once their symptoms begin, often coming by foot to the hospital or an outlying clinic
