For about 10 years I worked at Jhpiego, an affiliate of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. I worked as a technical editor, mainly working on their maternal and newborn health materials, and it is this organization that made possible my carpet-buying adventures in Afghanistan and the acquisition of the prized flying monkey, Bob.
I just found out from a friend still at Jhpiego that their work in Afghanistan will be featured on this special on global health by ABC's 20/20 tomorrow, December 17. UPDATE 12/18: Apparently this will be an ongoing series, and so last night's episode didn't include the feature on Jhpiego. I'll try to find out when that episode will air so I can let you know!
