It doesn't have to be fancy to be effective
Walking Doctor systems continue to purr within Liberia's only type I diabetes clinic for children, who otherwise would not survive without access to insulin and regular monitoring. In Liberia, it’s still this melodramatic. The clinic is based out of JDJ Public Hospital just outside of the Capitol of Monrovia and was founded by WD CEO & Founder, Dr. Wang in 2011 when he lived there.
The JDJ Diabetes clinic was the first to adopt WD's methods and tools following six years of running well without it. WD methods and tools make any health facility function better and faster be it in Monrovia, Jakarta or New York City.
Despite the Ebola crisis and other insults to Liberia's health care infrastructure, the number of patients at JDJ's diabetes clinic only grows. The current number of patients is 27. The clinic is led and sustained by medical leader Augustine Koryon with support from the International Diabetes Federation, the IRC, and Liberia's Health Ministry.
