South Africa's cycling medicine men

From the BBC news website; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-23770021 Collecting medicine from a hospital or clinic-based dispensary in some of South Africa's townships is no mean feat. There is the cost of transport to the facility, often hours spent queuing, the cost to have someone look after children left at home, or the loss of pay because of missing work.
