Kirollos Kilada

Ignaz Semmelweis was the first to stress the importance of handwashing in health facilities, namely delivery rooms. He was heavily persecuted and ultimately ended up in an insane asylum but continued to campaign for the practice of handwashing and saved many mothers and children in the process. A commentary on isolation that focuses on preventing the spread of disease, this old story resonates well in our current times.
