The TB ward at the HUEH hospital

I have been working in Haiti at the General Hospital since January. I work as the doctor in the TB ward. Most of our patients are young–usually in their twenties.

Many do not have enough resources to buy extra food to gain weight, beyond the food they are supplied by the hospital. We also are in need of supplies such as thoracentesis kits to drain with needles┬áthe liquid which accumulates in these patients’ lungs.
