              Dr Andrew Browning began helping patients affected by obstetric fistulas - a debilitating condition resulting from obstructed childbirth - after working with the late Dr Catherine Hamlin in the 1990s. Since then, Andrew has spent nearly two decades in Africa, establishing hospita...ls, preventing and treating fistulas, and training staff thereby helping to heal some of the world's most disadvantaged women. Up to two million women are estimated to be suffering with existing obstetric fistula injuries throughout Africa. They are often made outcasts in their own community, unable to leave their homes and left with little prospect of a happy, fulfilling life. Andrew's surgeries, and the spread of fistula-skilled practitioners he is training across the continent, don't just relieve the emotional and physical pain of the women affected, but gives them hope and a future. A Doctor in Africa is the uplifting story of Andrew's life, from the challenges faced along the way to the stories of the women whose lives he has forever changed.
