‘How to’ guide to treating medical diseases in Haiti

For those of you who are medically-minded, Jason Sims, D.O. has put a tremendous amount of work over the last 3 years into a ‘how to’ set of slides to help our medical providers when we go on medical mission trips to Haiti. Using his own personal experience as his starting point, he has conducted extensive research after each of his trips to Haiti to identify the conditions and diseases we have found and how to best treat them with the medicines we have available to us.

He has refined this knowledge into an easy to use algorithm, grouping them together by common complaint, e.g. “diarrhea” (subcategory cholera, typhoid, dysentery), or “skin diseases”, etc., along with their recommended treatments.

“Clinical Perspectives in Haiti” can be read or downloaded from the Health4haiti website:
