14HOW MSF WORKS HOW IMPORTANT ARE NATIONAL STAFF Kate Mort is an MSF-USA Director of Field Human Resources National staff are crucial to every MSF project they are at the core of everything we do. National staff make up around 90 percent of all MSF field workers so they do most of the nuts- and-bolts work that keeps our projects running. With staffing its all about context. And the individual. When I was in South Sudan in 2004 there was an enormously enthusiastic motivated and intelligent guy who started as a cleaner. Over the years he was promoted to working in the pharmacy working on pharmacy management working with dispensing medication and patient care. Eventually he became a medical officer. We certainly try to encourage professional development. There are various trainings available to national staff within MSF and we do more trainings in the field now. We also send people from different projects to trainings all over the world which is great because now we have a lot more national staff moving into higher levels of management and many who go on to work for us as expatriates themselves. National staff members are those who live locally in the country in which a project is located. Liberia2014ArmelleLoiseauMSF
