Feeling very proud at present, I am embarking on another new writing adventure, I have been appointed as the Africa editor for the UK based EMS publication – Ambulance Today, circulation includes, Europe, Canada, the Pacific Rim and now Africa.
At Ambulance Today we are always looking to expand our ambulance news coverage to different parts of the globe, which is why we are proud to launch our new segment ‘From the Africa Desk’ and introduce our Africa Editor, Michael Emmerich.
The Africa Quarterly editorial, that I will be writing, will cover the main regions in Africa, with opinion pieces from various regional role players. Our focus will be on the key regions across the continent; East, West, Central, Sub Sahara and North Africa. I will explore key and relevant NGO’s and the vital role that they play in bringing medicine and emergency medicine to the continent. The first article will be in the Summer Edition (UK Summer), which is in the next week 🙂
To all the medical people who follow this page, if you have any ideas for special feature articles on ambulance care in any part of Africa drop me a mail. Equally, if you have any news items you would like us to run either in our magazine or on our daily-updated global ambulance news website make contact.
To my fellow passionate EMS friends across the world, I trust you will walk this continent with me as we delve deeper into the respective regions in future articles. Till then be safe out there and stay passionate.
Hi to all my followers on twitter, facebook and wordpress, my current work situation in The DRC means that I am not able to reply to posts and/or comments on my posts/threads, or post new comments etc on twitter or facebook. WordPress seems to be the only app working 100% at present. Communication is intermittent and at times blocked or non-existent. Please excuse my silence and absence, I am not ignoring everybody, just frustrated in my silent world up north. Although in fairness I am enjoying some of the solitude, but missing my loved ones back home.
This my home away from home for a few months. The creativity does flow out here, in the still of the night and on quiet weekends, so my back catalogue of work is filling up 🙂
Till I am fully back in the 21st century (with respect to good internet), I will monitor the world from afar, and most certainly not be searching for Mr Kurtz.
