«Typical Laos… Swiss family doctors in action»

A documentary by Markus Abegg

Swiss doctors as volunteers in a Lao hospital: How does reality look like? And what are the results? Markus Abegg, a doctor and member of the Swiss Laos Hospital Project, has created an impressive movie around this topic.
With his camera he accompanied a group of family doctors during their mission in the Xieng Khouang province – unbiased, without avoiding difficult questions. This movie demonstrates what can be achieved with direct on-site assistance; but it also reveals the limits of our work.
