Rebecca Singer is a doctorally prepared nurse with over a decade of experience in humanitarian response and development work. She has worked with MSF since 2005, focusing on providing services to survivors of sexual and family violence in Liberia, Kenya, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Zimbabwe, and Papua New Guinea, and helped provide primary care to patients in Uganda. She also worked with survivors of torture who had immigrated to the United States, ensuring that they had adequate health care services. She has also worked for several NGOs that provided coffee farmers with cervical cancer prevention and helped them to improve their lives and livelihoods.
In June 2015 Rebecca went with MSF to South Kivu Province in DRC to treat people for malaria, a deadly disease. She and her colleagues hiked through deep forests to reach people with little or no access to medical care.
