'I'm Aisling, a paediatrician from Dublin. I studied medicine in National University of Ireland, Galway. I then went on to do my basic training in paediatrics in various hospitals across Ireland. I've always been interested in working with MSF - to share the skills I have and to have the opportunity to experience a different culture.
This is my first mission with MSF. I'm based in Quetta, in Pakistan. Here we have a 60 bed MSF-run paediatric hospital, which has a 20-bed nursery for newborns, and wards for treating malnourished babies and children.
I also work in the mother and child community healthcare centre, which cares primarily for Afghani refugees. The services provided there include a birthing unit, paediatric outpatient department, outpatient feeding programme and vaccination programme.
