EP.210 - JAVID ABDELMONEIM (OF MSF)

Adam talks with British born physician Javid Abdelmoneim about why working in an NHS A&E department was more stressful than working in war and disease zones with MSF. Javid also talks about his time treating people caught up in the war in Ukraine in 2022 and the West African Ebola crisis in 2014 as well as the emotional cost of the work that Javid does and how it affects his relationships back home. And there's some haemorrhoid chat too. 

He told me about his time working in Ukraine at the beginning of the war in 2022 and how spiritual comfort came to him from un unlikely source
