The team will see approximately 200 to 300 patients each day and provide education on wound care, skin treatments, and how to boil safe drinking water. The team members will administer anti-parasitic medication and multi-vitamins as well as connect patients with specialized needs with care providers in the vicinity. BSMCON’s team members are collaborating with local Haitian religious leaders to identify the area of most need and ensure patients receive proper follow-up care.
