PROJECT CURE: CURE CLINICS
This is a great opportunity to get Global Health experience without making a substantial time commitment. C.U.R.E. Clinics are an extension of the Project C.U.R.E. Cargo program offering medical support, services and education to Project C.U.R.E. international partners. C.U.R.E. Clinics benefit from the knowledge and expertise of all medical professionals. Our trips consist of doctors, nurses, advanced practitioners and medical assistants. Most needed specialties are pediatrics, women’s health, rheumatology, family practice and generalists. However, if you have the desire to serve, we will help you find a way to use your skills. Project C.U.R.E’s Clinic trips welcome both medical and non-medical participants. As a volunteer participant, once you arrive in country you are free to absorb the culture, make new friends, learn about the local healthcare system and make the impact you signed up to make.
ABOUT THE TRIP
Project C.U.R.E. partners with organizations around the world in delivering health and hope to populations in need. In Haiti, we have several partnerships and with them have delivered 56 containers with a value of $19,027,063.57 in medical supplies since the year 2000. This will be our fourth C.U.R.E. Clinic to Haiti and our first trip with our Haitian partners Profamil. In April of 2017 Project C.U.R.E. conducted needs assessments for a container to Profamil and at that time they requested a C.U.R.E. Clinic. Profamil is a leading provider of sexual and reproductive health care in Haiti, delivering services from four clinics. Services include gynecological exams, contraception distribution, prenatal services, post-abortion care, breast cancer screening, and STI testing and treatment. A network of health promoters and a mobile health unit provide family planning and basic care in rural areas, comprising some of the only health care services available in these remote communities. Our C.U.R.E. Clinic will visit four rural sites and work alongside Profamil staff and local nurses and doctors. Services provided will include primary care; however the primary focus will be STI testing, family planning education and cervical cancer screen and treat. Haiti has the highest reported incidence of cervical cancer of any country in the world, with 94 cases per 100,000 population. Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in Haitian women with an estimated 1,500 deaths annually.
While all medical participants are needed, this trip has a particular need for Family Practice professionals, OBYN's and midwives.
