I am a health promotion supervisor in Anka, Zamfara Govornate, in northern Nigeria.
I started working with Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in 2014. My first role in the team was as a translator. Then over time, I became a radio operator, before I became a health promotion supervisor in 2017.
Being a health promotion supervisor is a busy role. We work hard to engage local people in Anka, building a good rapport and strong relationships, and liaising with different groups and leaders.
I support a team of health promoters, giving training and coaching so that they can provide high quality health education. If someone who is involved in a treatment programme with MSF stops attending, it's also our health promotion team who go out into the community to find them and support them to come back.
Everything we do in Anka supports MSF's medical activities, working together with the community so we can achieve our objectives.
