Female Pakistan quake victims 'struggle' for medical help
Relief efforts continue in the remote Balochistan province of south-west Pakistan after last month's 7.7 magnitude earthquake killed more than 470 people and left hundreds of thousands homeless.
A powerful aftershock dealt a second blow to the same area four days later.
Some of those most desperately in need of specialist care at the only hospital in Awarran - near the epicentre of the quake - are women and children.
But social custom does not allow females to be treated my male doctors - and the hospital's only female practitioner is already inundated with a backlog of quake victims.
