What is advocacy, and how can it help our patients? James, a doctor from the UK, explains how a Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) advocacy team working in Sierra Leone is making a difference in the aftermath of Ebola
The maternal child health project, where MSF will be supporting a district in Sierra Leone, has not begun yet. We are due to commence activities later in January. Currently we are preparing; but as a team of humanitarian workers it is very difficult to be present and not clinically active. We are in an uncomfortable state of limbo, where we are here but without the usual MSF machine in full throttle behind us.
