Good to see the CEO of two large local healthcare organisations leading by example. It'd be useful to bear in mind though that the majority of staff in less senior positions in many places may not always enjoy the flexibility available to the their CEOs.

Mentorship, especially of those less fortunate, is an essential part of equitable capacity building. A thing that everyone doing GH research should commit many hours to. Their institutes must value this.
