About The Event
Based on MSF (Medecins Sans Frontieres) volunteers’ blogs, it explores the difficulties of humanitarian fieldwork from the perspective of The Patient, The Nurse, The Doctor, The Psychologist, and The Logistician.
In their own words, hear the stories of treating patients with Ebola, of dealing with snakes, machetes, and tuberculosis. Learn the challenges of creating functioning programmes with little support and few supplies. And hear, in their own words, the challenges of working with war-wounded and deeply traumatized patients.
