Triage : Dr. James Orbinski’s Humanitarian Dilemma follows the powerful odyssey of James Orbinski, a humanitarian and doctor who accepted the 1999 Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders. In Triage he returns to Africa to ponder the meaning of his life’s work and the value of helping others. Drawing on his experience deep in the trenches of genocide and famine, this extraordinary man relives the triumphs and tragedies of relief work in Somalia, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Bristling with energy, Triage brings the causes and cures of conflict into sharp focus through Orbinski’s unflinching, fearless perspective.
