House Call
Photograph by Stuart Franklin

Nurse Kanyaluk Tejanpongvarachai examines Juidaporn Netuark, eight months pregnant, on the floor of a house in Lad Prau, a poor neighborhood of Bangkok, Thailand. Netuark, 35, might have received the same prenatal care at a hospital, but it would have meant a long trip and an expensive doctor's visit. To keep the city healthy, government nurses bring free care to the poor.
