Bo is the pseudonym chosen by a nurse who started working with Médecins Sans Frontières during the 1990s. Having trained as an adult nurse in London in the mid-1980s, she left for Australia in the late 1980s, started volunteering for Amnesty and joined MSF in 1991/2. Returning to England to take a tropical medicine course and learn French in preparation, Bo was then posted to Somalia. This was the first of many missions all over the world, interspersed with further study, time working for the NHS, marriage and parenthood. Bo continues to work for MSF as a policy advisor and researcher.
