Healthcare Inequalities and Sustainability

Kagando hospital nestled in a valley with a tree covered mountain in the background

Join me in discussing the art of living in areas of the world with gross inequalities in terms of health care and access to resources. How can people there live longer, healthier lives in the face of such inequality compared to the western world?
How can the average life expectancy of the male in central Africa be 23 years less than his counterpart in the western world? What sustainable measures can be used to reduce risk to life whilst maximising longevity and nurturing sustainability for the people and our planet?
Listen to a fascinating account by Mr Peter Lunn, a retired NHS hand surgeon and innovator who grew up in Africa and is now supporting a hospital in Uganda. He is part of a charity which has started building a hydroelectric plant to generate power so the people he serves can live longer healthier lives.
