“Without the political will to change, vulnerable people remain deprived of humane treatment and an end to life free of pain.”
This is the conclusion of the documentary ‘Senegal: Africa’s Drug Scandal’ which is due to be broadcast on Channel 4 at 7:35pm tonight (Friday 30 May 2014).
In the documentary, we see reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy and director Daniel Bogado travel to Senegal to reveal how patients across the continent are being deprived of the single most important drug for relieving the pain of cancer – morphine – despite governments having the funds to purchase supplies.
Following broadcast, the programme will be available to watch on 4oD. Find out more on the Unreported World website.
