Faces of Popondetta General Hospital – Susanne Weress

Newsletter No 17

Consultant clinical pharmacist, Susanne joined the most recent OCDP trip to Popondetta General Hospital. Her wealth of broad experience in the developing world with MSF allowed her to accurately identify the areas of greatest need and suggest practical ways forward.

As well as Susanne’s knowledge as a pharmacist and therapeutics educator with NPSMedicineWise, she worked in a Tuberculosis/HIV project in Kenya, and visited TB/HIV field projects in Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan. She merged both of these areas of expertise in her most recent role on the board of MSF-Australia. In her capacity as a director Susanne represented MSF-A to the Congress of MSF-Swiss’ partner meetings in Geneva and facilitated annual Association events in Myanmar and Kyrgyzstan. She continues on the Governance and Association board sub-committee.

While in Popondetta, she worked closely with the staff in the hospital pharmacy and assisted in delivery of training sessions in infection control.

OCDP is delighted to have Susanne join our medical team to assist the people of Oro Province.
