Health talk at the clinic
A nurse explains the clinic procedure to the waiting patients and then gives a short talk about a public health topic, such as multiple drug-resistant TB. Before she started to speak, everyone sang a hymn together. Singing is a strong tradition in many African countries and builds a sense of community and connection between the patients and the nurse – all of which supports communication. SWAZILAND.
