I don't think they have to be mutually exclusive, or even contrasted as one better than the other. Rather, each serves it's own purpose, and those doing "relief work" do so because of a certain leaning, while those leaning towards "development work" do so because of a different leaning. As I write this, I am sitting at the African Conference on Emergency Medicine listening to a wonderful presentation by a group of Congolese doctors using ultrasound in war settings due to investment in education and training by an external university focused on long term development of skills and capacity in congo.
