Jon Larsen

A story of compassionate care in a rural Zulu community Isandlwana, Zululand, November 1879: A young couple arrived to set up a mission station next to the battlefield. They lived out their productive lives in the area. The Charles Johnson Memorial Hospital was established to commemorate their work. It became famous for the clinical excellence of its services and for its resistance to the assaults of the Apartheid government on missionary community life from the 1960s to 70s. Patients flocked to the hospital from a very wide area. Medical students and colleagues from all over the world came to sample the enthusiastic hospitality and teaching ability of its leading doctors, Anthony and Margaret Barker. They also came to experience the life of this extraordinary community, which received its greatest test when it was nationalized in 1975. This is an enthralling account of the development of a rural health service, and of the part the faith of some extraordinary people played in its success.

Jon Larsen grew up in Zululand and received his medical training at the University of Cape Town. He joined the staff of the Charles Johnson Memorial Hospital in 1965. There he developed a passion for the delivery of excellent maternity care to rural Zulu women. Most of the 47 years of his professional career has been spent in following that passion. He is married to Jackie. They have three children and eight grandchildren. He now lives in Howick in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands.
