At the gates of Dakar, the blue and white buildings of the Keur Massar Hospital of Traditional Medicine stretch out peacefully. When it was founded in 1980, the hospital was built in an isolated zone to treat people with leprosy. Today, patients come from all over the capital and the surrounding regions to consult the hospital's healers and to visit the pharmacy. Traditional practitioner Alio Ngom welcomes Bernad Fontanille to Keur Massar and explains the hospital's strength. Aliou also takes Bernard to his home in the Sereer region to explain the roots of his practice.
