Is It Time to Move North?
I was disappointed when MSF-USA told me I could not blog anymore due to security risk. Then Olivier sent me the link to the MSF-Canada website, where they are posting blogs from many of their volunteers, and my disappointment turned into irritation with MSF-USA. I should have known it was a MSF-USA thing, rather than an MSF-International policy. Technically I´m contracted by MSF-USA, although I´m working with the MSF-Spain operational section. I suppose I´m offically beholden to MSF-USA´s rules. I wonder if I could contract with the MSF-Canada office next time...Although then I wouldn´t have health insurance when I get back to the US after my mission. Í would have to buy my medicines to de-worm myself out-of-pocket and add my name to the roster of 40 million uninsured Americans.
