'I’m on my way Masengbeh, to one of the health posts MSF is supporting in Sierra Leone. The journey is 30 minutes from the health centre in a land cruiser, 25 on a motorbike, and several hours on foot. Joining me are two Johns; our logistician assistant and our health promoter. Some of the staff complain about the road being uncomfortable.'
