Episode

We now head to Maripasoula – a city of 10,000 inhabitants bordering the rainforest and the Maroni river – to discover a singular medicine. It is specific to an extreme environment with its own pathologies, different from the metropolis… 

There are no roads here; the plane, helicopter and pirogue are our only means of transportation.
We share Cécile’s daily life: he is a young family doctor working at the Maripasoula health center – he also takes part in medical rounds across isolated native American villages. Tropical medicine, infectious diseases stemming from the damp environment but also emergencies punctuate his days.
