I’ve been home from Haiti less than two weeks and I am already pining to go back! I have a few vaccine and HIV/AIDS stories I want to explore further and write about in-depth. That alone will take a few more short trips or one long trip. I also just want to see more of the country. Naive that I was before going to Haiti, I didn’t realize it is so mountainous. Plus, I didn’t get a chance to see any of Haiti’s beaches which is something on my next trip’s to-do list. There are a lot of stories to tell from Haiti.
I have written extensively about the time I spent with Hôpital Albert Schweitzer over at Social Good Moms, but I haven’t shared all of my photos just yet. As much as I have traveled for global health reporting, it was my first time really focusing on vaccines. Typically I concentrate on maternal health, agriculture and child health through improved health care. This was a welcomed change.
Here are a few photos from my time spent at a mobile clinic where children were given the polio and pentavelent vaccines and expectant mothers got vaccinated against tetanus.
