Donka, X-Ray of an African Hospital

Donka, radioscopie d'un hôpital africain

Directed by Thierry Michel
France, Belgium, 2001
Documentary, TV Movie


Donka Hospital in Conakry, Guinea is similar to many African hospitals. Built in 1959 just before independence, it was designed based on a European model, with little consideration for the realities of Africa. Its plight typifies the crisis affecting the entire African health sector.
