Amrita finished her mission in early 2016.
I'm an infectious diseases doctor from Sydney, Australia, on my first mission with MSF in Nukus, Karakalpakstan, Uzbekistan.
Before I started the mission I had never even heard of the Autonomous republic of Karakalpakstan, and I had to check on a map where Uzbekistan was.
I am really glad to be working in a TB project, that has been running here for a number of years, working towards developing new treatment options for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. Hopefully I can share some stories along the way about life and work in MSF, working in TB and living in Karakalpakstan.
