The article offers the author's insight on the investigation regarding the impact of dzud or an extreme winter emergency caused by weather condition in Mongolia in 2010 on the economic and health condition of nomadic herders. She states that she was asked by Médecins Sans Frontières to join an exploratory team that explores the health impact of dzud.
