A member of staff comforts a patient on a ward at the Panzi Hospital which was founded by Congolese gynaecologist Dr Denis Mukwege in 1999. Mukwege specialises in treating women who are victims of rape as a weapon of war.
He has treated many thousands of women and his demands for victim's justice have resulted in death threats. In 2012 his bodyguard was killed in an assassination attempt. As a result he is now a virtual prisoner at the Panzi Hospital.
