My first blog, still at home, before my internship period starts in Mongolia! There's only one week left before I'll leave to the other side of the world to start with my final internship in the Nalaikh District Health Centre in Nalaikh, Ulaanbaatar Next week Wednesday the 21st of August, I'll be flying via Moscow to Ulaanbaatar.
I'll be researching substance abuse (mainly alcohol) among families and related problems to this such as domestic violence, violation of women's rights, and the existence and development of mental disorders among children of these families. I'm really exited to leave and I'm looking forward to start working in the clinic, get to meet new people and to get to know this country which must be so different from the Netherlands...
Hopefully I will be able to give regular updates via this blog so you can read what I'm experiencing!
