Dr. Mazin Al-Jadiry, a senior oncologist and assistant professor of medicine, needs a new computer. His old one, purchased in 2015 is worn down and out-of-date. Not a big problem for most doctors or professors as computers are—to state the obvious— critical, an absolute necessity, provided and maintained as part of the job. But this is not the case in Baghdad—not in the hospital where Dr. Mazin works, and not at the University in Baghdad where he teaches. Can you imagine a doctor at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute without a computer? Or a university professor in the US being told to buy their own computer?
