Last two days, I have been to some forestvillages on the Malaysian-Indonesian border in a part of rural outreach clinic. The villages were Christian ones so we spent the Christmas with them there. What shocked me besides the tough poor life on the Jungle Mountains was the fact that these villagers can see a doctor only once every three months. This of course has led to the spread of many health problems. Do you have a similar situation in your country? What do you think can be done to lessen these problems?
