[Perspectives] Evan Atar Adaha: surgeon and tireless caregiver

“If I tell a patient I am sorry this I cannot treat, they say OK let me go back home and die there. That is the desperate situation of these people. Therefore, we cannot think of abandoning them, we have to continue”, says Evan Atar Adaha. It is this unwavering commitment that has driven 53-year-old Atar, a South Sudanese surgeon, to work tirelessly in one of the world’s most violent regions. Last month he was awarded UNHCR’s 2018 Nansen Refugee Award for his 20-year commitment to the provision of life-saving medical services to refugees forced to flee conflict and persecution in Sudan and South Sudan and to the communities that welcome them.
