NURSING, MIDWIFERY & HEALTH
Work with Médecins sans Frontières sparks new insights By Belinda Smart’ An operating theatre comprising four posts and a tarpaulin, and a surgery schedule of 30 to 45 patients a day (as opposed to her Australian average of around five) was all in a day’s work for Rachel Marsden during her recent stint in Haiti with Médecins sans Frontières (MSF). Haiti wasn’t Rachel’s first time with MSF. In 2008/9 she’d done a stint with the NGO in Nigeria where she managed an operating theatre for emergency maternity surgery and a vaginal fistula repair program. “Everything was challenging about that situation really. For one thing it was a culture shock. You walk into a different world, with a different language and customs. We were in a very remote part of the country and it was the first time most of the locals had seen white people. The response we got was mixed; some were scared and some were excited. Nigeria has around 140 languages and the local language was Hausa, with English as the second language. There were no interpreters. They really weren’t ready for surgery either. There was a very basic hospital and the Ministry of Health in Nigeria is very shady. Everything was very expensive and very corrupt.” To read the full article visit www.ncah.com.au Copyright NCAH www.ncah.com.au
