Barefoot doctors of Nepal!

Suraj Dhital was inspired to become a doctor after seeing a painting of a bare-foot doctor in China in a magazine when he was a young boy growing up in Nepal. He went to Shanghai to study medicine and returned as a doctor to Nepal where he started applying the concept of bare-foot doctors. Now, thanks to wireless connectivity and the internet, he provides training to bare-foot doctors in remote parts of Nepal and examines patients through video conferencing.
