Finding Medicine with Dr Norris Igbineweka and Dr Mary Ansong

Health inequality is a major challenge both within and between countries, but what happens when the latest therapies are inaccessible to the countries that need them most? On this episode i'm joined by Dr Norris Igbineweka, a UK-based haematologist who's currently undertaking a PhD in gene editing for red blood cell diseases at Imperial University in collaboration with the University of Oxford, and Dr Mary Ansong, a medical doctor based in Ghana and founder of the International Sickle Cell Centre.
