Listen to the Inner Compass interview (#720) of
Peter Okaalet that also took place while he was at Calvin College.

Named a Global Health Hero in 2005 by Time Magazine, Dr. Okaalet is a Ugandan physician and pastor working to bridge the gap between doctors and clergy when it comes to combating the epidemic of AIDS. Okaalet, whose 3 brothers have died of AIDS, lives in Nairobi where he serves as Africa Director for a Christian medical-assistance group called MAP International. He has spent the last 12 years working with ministers, and their congregations, to refine and in some cases redefine their response to AIDS.
