Bihar India




In three days, I will leave for Bihar India to work on another MSF project. Bihar is one of the poorest States in India. It is in the Northeast part of the country, just south of Nepal and West of Bhutan. The project is on diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of visceral leishmaniasis (also known as Kala-Azar). Kala-Azar is a protozoal infection transmitted by the sandfly. More on this disease in future posts.

I first heard about the project just two weeks ago, when I was in Liverpool, finishing up my tropical medicine course. I have not had enough time prepare for this trip, but I am excited nonetheless. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to work in Asia (my fourth continent in three years!).
