5: A Leap of Faith

In our penultimate episode we are looking at the Leishmaniasis East Africa Platform, also known as LEAP. Here to talk me through this interconnected, collaborative network are two LEAP members who first met as colleagues and later became firm friends; Ahmed Musa of Khartoum University and Simon Bolo of DNDi Africa. This was a fascinating discussion on many of the serious hurdles faced by medical professionals working in the region.

Ahmed Musa
is Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases at the Institute of Endemic Diseases in the University of Khartoum.

Simon Bolo
is Regional Operations Leader for DNDi Africa. He can be found on Twitter at @BoloSimon.
