“Oh no, we are never closed.” With a shake of his head and a small smile, the sole doctor at the NdekaCommunity Health Clinic, two hours outside of Blantyre, stood in the doorway of a small, brightly painted room, describing the clinic’s operations to a group of fascinated innovators. The two rooms the doctor had shown us housed all of the beds in the clinic- a total of 7.  Another 200 patients will be seen by the doctor that day. Between him and four other nurse-midwives, they are responsible for all clinic operations and care, day-in, day-out, for 365 days a year.
