Dr Javid Abdelmoneim has been a Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors without Borders doctor for almost 10 years. In that time he has been in some of the world's most distressing and challenging disaster zones from Haiti to Sierra Leone to South Sudan.
Along the way, he has also developed a television career - fronting programmes about his work with MSF and also medical and cultural issues facing the UK, where he was born and raised.
Javid is in New Zealand to deliver a talk at AUT's Auckland campus about life on the front-line.
He joins Kathryn to talk about how his work has given him perspective and what more needs to be done.
