Doctor Denis MUKWEGE


Gynaecologist and head of Panzi hospital. Originally from Bukavu in South Kivu, Congo, Dr. Denis MUKWEGE found his way into the Faculty of Medicine of Burundi and graduated as a doctor in 1983.

Dr Denis MUKWEGE is a "just man who repairs women". A gynaecologist whose hands heal the deepest of wounds, and whose voice tirelessly denounces rape as a weapon of mass destruction.

Since opening his Panzi hospital in 1996, he has treated more than 40,000 raped women and girls.
