In Tanzania there is only one doctor to every 125,000 people. This is one of the lowest rates of doctors in the world.
Thankfully we have some inspiring people doing their part to help.
Laura Goodwins and Samantha Iannella are two Adelaide Medical students who recently returned from a placement at Mt Meru Regional Hospital in Tanzania.
Here, they not only offered their services, but managed to raise enough money to give even more to the community. They joined Chris Komorek on Breakfast to talk about their experiences.
