I'm a logistician from Brazil, on my first assignment with MSF. I’m responsible for the logistics of a project in Chipinge district in Zimbabwe, close to the border with Mozambique.
My job is rewarding and challenging. Among many other things, we facilitate rehabilitation work in district clinics and hospitals to support the Ministry of Health. Usually, MSF projects in Zimbabwe are focused on HIV and AIDS. We also provide tuberculosis (TB) care (one of the opportunistic infections that can affect people with the HIV virus). The project I work in is also about to commence a program for Non Commutable Diseases (NCDs). These are diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma and other.
I’m sure I’m in the right place at the right time. Working with MSF is rewarding in every way and it’s wonderful to know that I make a difference in the lives of so many people.
