Local representative

Medics Without Vacation believes that the collaboration with a local representative is an added value for its actions. In August 2013, Dr. Marcellin Kash Karubara has been appointed as the local representative for the region of the Great Lakes.  Not only does he closely collaborates with the partner hospitals in Burundi, Rwanda and Eastern Congo, he also maintains excellent contacts with the local authorities, providing a solid anchorage for Medics Without Vacations’ actions, specificaly tailored to the national health policy. From his operating base in Bujumbura (Burundi), Dr Kash is well placed to closely monitor  and evaluate the collaboration.

"As a result of my physical presence in the region and my origins, I know the local habits, the main actors, the health care systems and I also speak the language. All these habilities contribute to a greater confidence in the collaboration."
