Les dégâts de la Bilharziose en Ouganda, point de vue d'un gastroentérologue

Dr Christopher Opio is a gastroenterologist in Kampala. Many of the patients whom he treats at the hospital suffer from portal hypertension and ascites caused by Schistosoma or the hepatitis B or C virus. As the on-site doctor, he has been working with our teams along the banks of Lake Albert for several years. We would like to let him speak, in order to have a better understanding of the destruction caused by these hepatic illnesses, which affect communities in Uganda.
