Development tied to citizens' health and well-being
To Dr Humdulay, access is a most important part of development. “Though my mother didn't have formal education, taking care of the less fortunate was important to her. She made me promise to work for our country. If people in villages know that there is a doctor visiting them, they will come out and ask for a check-up. For me, this availability is development,” he explains.
