Outpatients on the Mekong

More medicine - this time in the Tibetan/Naxi village of Cizhong on the upper Mekong, near Deqin. These patients have been treated at the clinic you can see above. The man is undergoing acupuncture for a painful osteoarthritis of the knee. Looks painful to me. The hospital waiting room and outpatients doubles as the basketball court. There's multidisciplinary teamwork for you.
