Emma Dimelow
Hopitaly Vaovao Mahafaly, Mandristara 415, Madagascar

Clinical interest: General surgery

“We flew from Heathrow to Antananarivo, changing in Nairobi. We stayed the night in Tana before getting a helicopter (very exciting!) to Mandritsara, the town where the hospital was based, the following morning. On arrival at the hospital we were greeted by various members of the hospital team and shown round the hospital and to our accommodation. It was impressive for rural Madagascar, but nothing compared to what we have in the UK. The hospital and accommodation buildings were built of bricks and provided the basic needs, however, there was no running water.”
