    A Young Batwa Medical Student Advocates for Health Care for his People Forcefully Displaced From Their Forest in Uganda

    For thousands of years the Batwa people lived in the Impenetrable Forest of Uganda. Hunters and gatherers who are often derisively referred to as pygmies, the Batwa are the original people of a lush and beautiful land where they gathered food and collected wild honey through the generations. In 1991, conservationists seeking protection for the endangered mountain gorilla of this East African country forcibly displaced the Batwa from their ancestral home, causing disruptions of such enormous proportions that, though the gorillas have been saved, it is the Batwa people who are now in danger of becoming extinct.
