This talk was recorded live at the global paediatrics session at DFTB17 in Brisbane. Watch out for more talks from our inaugural conference in the coming weeks.

Nat has worked for Médecins Sans Frontières in Al Ruwayshed, Jordan. Stuck on the Jordanian side of the border she couldn’t access the patients stranded in Syria in an area called the Berm. She has told the fictional story of Ibrahim, a Syrian child wandering in this place she can’t access and now asks an existential question – what is a doctor in this place that does not even exist?

You can listen to this talk as you walk to work on any device that supports podcasts.

And if you don’t want to make notes then Claire Chandler has done it for you.
