Files are seen in a corridor at the hospital in Viseul de Sus in Romania. The hospital has only one doctor per speciality for most areas and when the doctor goes on leave, the hospital has to close that unit. After finishing their residency in the hospital many young doctors either leave to live abroad or go to larger medical centres. The management of the hospital managed to bring a Syrian and a Moldovan doctor to help fill positions. REUTERS/Andreea Campeanu
