Vikas Acharya (Foundation Doctor)

‘Going on the Kenya Orthopaedic Project has truly been a milestone in my life! Not only did I learn more about different people from a different culture and how they access and experience healthcare but more importantly I learnt how to respect and work alongside those who face the challenge of providing healthcare with limited resources on a daily basis. Seeing this first hand definitely gives you an opportunity to reflect on what we have and what we take for granted as well as making some lifelong friendships along the way!’

Since the opportunity to join the KOP project as a medical student in 2010, Vikas has now been involved with KOP and coordinated the Mombasa 2011 project as a foundation doctor.
