21 Mar Be the Change, Save a Life – ABC News Initiative: The Proof is in Kenya

By the time many patients get to the district hospital in Siaya, they are exhausted – and very ill. They often have to walk (or bike) three to six miles to get to the hospital, so it is a trek they are not likely to take until they are very ill. If it is a child who’s ill, the trek can become a last-minute sprint.
Dr. Vincent Kioi spends his days tirelessly fighting to help people get and stay healthy. It’s a battle he is determined to win.
“I have worked in this hospital for nearly two years now,” Dr. Kioi says. “I chose to work here as I was interested in participating in clinical research, which I believe will help impact the lives of thousands of people across the continent.”
