Blood and Milk
is the blog of international development worker and writer Alanna Shaikh
, who consults on global health development and writes for publications such as the UN Dispatch
. Her views, based both on her work in the field and her study & understanding of sociology, international relations, and other such subjects, tend to be contrary to most other opinions on international development: voluntourism isn't helpful
, development work is mired in a culture of nice
, don't bother starting an NGO
(or, if you will anyway, here's how to succeed
), global health doesn't need innovation
, and microfinance is a disappointment
. Also, here's how to tell if your health project is doomed
, and Haiti doesn't need your shoes
(some people vehemently disagree
). Educated well-researched iconoclast, or pessimistic Mary Contrary?

One thing you can do today is drop by The Kids AIDS Site
and click the button to donate health care to children around the world.
Then come back and do it again tomorrow. And every day until we don't need a Kids AIDS Site anymore.
