I am on my first mission with MSF working in Boost Hospital, Helmand province, in the south of Afghanistan. MSF has supported Boost Hospital, the public provincial hospital in Lashkar Gah, for five years. Over the years the hospital has grown considerably and currently has a capacity of 285 beds.
I graduated from medical school in Germany in 2011 and have worked in pediatrics (general and neonatology) in Germany since then. I'll stay in Lashkar Gah for nine months in total.
