Why I stopped charging my patients for consultations

Mohamed Bailor Barrie risked his life to become a doctor during Sierra Leone's civil war. However, he soon discovered that the health service in the country was unaffordable for the people he wanted to help. He explains why he stopped charging some of his patients for consultations and how this led him to establish the Wellbody Alliance to help improve health care in Kono district, Sierra Leone.
