Description - A Doctor's Dream by Dr. Buddhi Lokuge

When Dr Buddhi moved to Arnhem Land to run a health program for Aboriginal children, he had no idea he would face the challenge of his life.Six months into running the 5 million dollar program he realised it was going to fail, and that's when the trouble began. In the face of powerful opposition from high profile experts, he listened to the elders and took the slow road. Through painstaking observation and working in partnership with patients and the community, together they found a way to overcome a neglected disease as debilitating and stigmatised as leprosy.This is a powerful story of redemption, and an honest and inspiring account of a family living and working in remote Aboriginal Australia to give voice to forgotten people.'Could not put it down. It is one of the best things I've read in years in this area, full of profound insights encapsulated in a great story.' - Professor Peter Drahos, Australian National University
