I am a medical doctor specialising in HIV and sexual health from London. I am near the end of my specialist registrar training and am lucky enough to have been granted some time out of programme to work abroad. I recently completed a Master’s in public health which reignited my interest in humanitarian aid work and spurred me on to apply to work with MSF.
I have previously worked for NGOs but none with the reputation of MSF. The work of MSF is widely respected and I am both excited and grateful for the opportunity to work within the organisation.
I am currently on my first assignment working with MSF France in Homa bay, Kenya on a HIV project. My work is focused on inpatient management in the hospital facility which is the referral centre for around 20 health centres in the local county.
When not working I enjoy being a trek doctor and tackling the odd mountain or two, running (be it slowly!) to explore the new places I am in and have been known to practice yoga until I fall over!
