    By 2006, Dilan Ellegala, an accomplished neurosurgeon, had reached the highest rungs of the American medical establishment, but he was on the verge of burning out. In search of restoration, he took a sabbatical at a remote missionary hospital in Haydom, Tanzania. There, he discovered a medical world different from the one he knew: Tanzania had three neurosurgeons for a population of 43 million. Since that first trip, Dr. Ellegala has solidified his “train-forward” philosophy into the NGO Madaktari (Swahili for “doctors”)—sending hundreds of doctors worldwide to serve as mentors and to create a sustainable model for global health.
