A woman is in labor and she and her baby are in distress; her midwife cannot manage the complications. The nearest neonatal and obstetric care facility is hours away. The transport across Lake Victoria to the mainland takes about an hour, if a boat is even available, then it could take another one to two hours to reach an obstetrician and an operating room, which also may not be available, in a county of one million residents.
