...where medical doctors like this prominent, respected member of the profession, Dr. Satupaitea 'Satu'  Viali, is a life saviour to a lot of his patients.  The sick depend on him and his other medical colleagues to restore them to good health.

What many soon forget is that these healers are ordinary human beings who also tire from their work and must rest to regain their strength like any normal person.  Spare a thought, as you read this, for our health workers working round the clock to fight the measles epidemic.
