Anna is a surgeon who has completed 15 missions with MSF. This is her story.
Anna has worked in a number of different circumstances, such as in Haiti after the earthquake and Ivory Coast during the war there. The MSF protocols, applied in all fields, are similar to European standards, and the equipment available is suitable for all types of surgery. In Abidjan, Anna and national staff surgeons shared the workload based on their expertise. Anna really loves the inflatable tents, which provide a much-needed operating space that is easy to clean and can be adapted as required to meet varying needs.
