-för en 'bättre värld'
As you know, my plan is to become a doctor, and Médecins Sans Frontières has served as the major inspirational source to this dream. I have followed their work, and worked for them in Sweden a few months, for a while, and studied what they do and how the do it. However, the forgotten diseases that they fight on a daily basis, the general public has no idea of which they are. In this short series, I will unveil, insofar as I can describe and understand them, the main diseases that MSF fights.
This is just an introductory post, as a heads up. These are the diseases I will deal with (from this MSF source):
I do not know how quickly I will be able, and have the power to, write about these factors of global health, but I will indeed try to finish this series within two months. So, keep checking this blog out, and I will try to do my best to give you a picture of what illness is out there, what sickness and suffering we in the West barely hear of.
