''People doctors”.

Herodotus the father of history wrote this about the ancient Persians..

''They have no physicians, but when a man is ill, they lay him in the public square, and the passers-by come up to him, and if they have ever had his disease or have known anyone who has suffered from it, they give him advice, recommending him to do whatever they found good in their own case, or in the case known to them; and no one is allowed to pass the sick man in silence without asking him what his ailment is.''

With our chronic lack of doctors in Ghana, maybe a modified version of this will help us a long way...)))
