Meet Dr. William Audu: The Only Doctor Serving Over 88000 patients

Dr. William Audu is the Medical Superintendent at Bongo District Hospital in Ghana.

He is the only doctor serving 88,677 people and an undisclosed number from neighbouring Burkina Faso.

Everyday, Dr. William Gudu has to deal with poor facilities and inadequate equipment while carrying out his duties.

He performs operations in a small dental ward and devises unorthodox applications for existing supplies. When performing a pleural tap—an invasive procedure that removes fluid or air from between the lungs—he pieces together a urine bag, IV line, and hollow needle.

Inspite of the odds, Bongo Hospital did not record any maternal death in 2015 and only two maternal deaths in 2014.
