Kaya, Burkina Faso

A member of the medical staff at the Kaya Regional Hospital reads the case notes for some children sitting with their guardians on a bed behind her. The hospital is operating at over 100% capacity, in many cases there are three patients per bed.

Once considered 'safe', Burkina Faso (meaning 'land of the upright man') is suffering from increasing instability as a result of attacks from jihadist groups now active in the country.
