An up-close look at Nobel Laureate Denis Mukwege and his work at Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Mukwege, a co-recipient of the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize, is a gynecologist who founded the hospital to treat women victims of rape in Congo. In the last 10 years, the hospital says it's treated more than 30,000 women, who were often victims of militants with the country's various rebel factions.
