Chidiebere Ibe: Illustrator of black fetus to have art published in book

Nigerian illustrator Chidibere Ibe’s drawing of a black fetus went viral online.

He taught himself anatomy through YouTube videos during lockdown in 2020.

Now he is training in medicine and his medical drawings are being published in a book.

The 25-year-old is calling for a change in the way doctors across the world are trained, to recognise differences in symptoms on darker skin.
