Affiliation: Medical Department, Médecins Sans Frontières, Geneva, Switzerland

Having obtained a diploma of medicine, anaesthesiology, intensive care and emergency medicine at the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, I also have a university degree in public health. After several missions as anaesthetist for MSF (Médecins Sans Frontières) in Bosnia and the Belgian Red Cross in Rwanda, I started working as field coordinator and medical coordinator with several MSF sections in Mauritania, Kenya, Soudan and Ethiopia. I took the position of hospital director for MSF in Jordan. Between missions I continue working as anaesthetist and emergency doctor in Belgium and France. Since more than 2 years I am the medical director’s deputy at headquarters of MSF Switzerland in Geneva.
