Medical books often use light-skinned models as examples of how to note disease symptoms, something which can make it hard to diagnose diseases for people with black and brown skin tones. Malone Mukwende, a young medical student from the UK, has created a handbook to address the problem. In this BBC Sounds interview, Malone highlights a lack of resources available to be able to detect symptoms on diverse skin tones quickly and save lives.
The handbook 'Mind the Gap' is not yet published but Malone is working to see it implemented in the UK's medical school curriculum.
