Kenneth Magala: "I’m a Health Worker"

Spend one minute with a nurse named Kenneth Magala, who tells us exactly what he likes most about his job at Mityana Hospital in rural central Uganda.”I’m Magala, Kenneth, and I’m a health worker,” he says. One of the patients that I helped was severely malnourished, with dermatitis, odema, and some general wounds around the body.  “What I like most about my job is when I have treated someone and he’s in a good condition,” Kenneth says.”One of the patients that I helped was severely malnourished, with dermatitis, odema, and some general wounds around the body. In the management of that kind of malnutrition, I was with a group of other nurses who helped me in giving antibiotics while I’m giving the therapeutic foods. And the child got into a good condition.”Meet the Health WorkersThe “I’m a Health Worker” video series features short, informal conversations with health workers all over the world.
