Unit for premature infants at Polizu Hospital in Bucharest, Romania


The picture was taken in December 1997 at the Polizu Hospital in Bucharest. One of the nurses is seen attending to one of the premature infants. The rapid impoverishment of a large part of the Romanian population due to its transition to a capitalist society has greatly affected the eating habits of Romanians and this has led to an increase in the number of premature births.
