Sometime ago, l told you guys i started work in an hospital and i promised to share some of the stories with you. Here's one of them. Enjoy.
While consulting with dr. Cynthia (not real name though)this man walks into the consulting room and they started conversing in igbo. Of course, my understanding of the igbo language is still very limited but I had a grasp of the conversation when she said “ these drugs are free and are provided by the government, so why haven’t you been on your medication for the past 6 years?”.
The only reason he visited the hospital was because he was getting really sick. The doctor refused to attend to him until he brought his wife and kids and get them screened for the virus. He left the consulting room downcasted. I never really followed up on the case and can’t say what happened but I felt bad for his family and thought about the effect his decision is going to have on his family.
