China - Interiors of Chinese Peasant Homes

Hospital room in Li Jia Wa Zi village. During bad weather, patients can spend the night at the doctor's. In winter, the doctor lives with his wife in this room as it is impossible to heat the house. Ma Dong Ji, the "barefoot doctor" is the only doctor practicing in this mountainous region. He travels by scooter and receives a portion of medicines from the government, the remainder coming from private NGOs. His well-worn doctor's bag and stethoscope attest to the difficulty of his work. Most of his patients, when they are very ill, come to him on foot after walking several hours through the mountains. Hospital costs are prohibitive for village families who spend all their meagre savings to send a relative to hospital.
